Marathon reading of “Bartleby, the Scrivener” @ 60 Wall St, 11/10

Bartleby’s positive refusal continues to resonate with the OWS movement (see my previous post here). Housing Works bookstore is organizing a reading of Herman Melville’s “Bartleby, the Scrivener: a Story of Wall Street” for next Thursday, Nov. 10 at 3pm at 60 Wall Street.

It’s a not the 24-hour Moby-Dick marathon that happens every year in New Bedford, Mass. In fact, one might think of it as a “fun run” rather than a marathon. It’ll probably last about two hours. And, hopefully, it will be followed by some really interesting conversations.

Write to events (at) housingworksbookstore (dot) org for more information, or to participate.
