Full Moon Reading with Karen Halbersleben
Each full moon we gather around the bonfire as the moon rises over the East Bay of Lake Superior.
This month local British history professor and tour guide Karen Halbersleben will lead the reading: Come experience the magnificent world of Patrick O’Brian as presented in his 20-volume “Master and Commander” epic of life on land and sea during the Napoleonic Wars. Through the adventures of Captain Jack Aubrey of His Majesty’s Royal Navy, and his friend (also ship surgeon, naturalist, and British spy) Steven Maturin, readers circle the globe, experiencing the excitement of naval battle, ship wreck, and storms at sea. Readers are also introduced to the flora and fauna of a world before industrialization, and the vagaries of the human heart in love and war. Some of the best, most engaging writing in the English language: a lifelong addiction awaits!
