NEA BIG READ

Coastal GA Reads: In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick

NEA BIG READ SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

NEA BIG READ ONLINE RESOURCE GUIDE

Lucky 13! We are excited to celebrate 13 years of our community-wide read with an array of discussions, lectures, and special events that will take place in February 2020.

Nathaniel Philbrick’s In the Heart of the Sea is “one of the most chilling books I have ever read,” writes Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm. Winner of the National Book Award for Nonfiction and on the New York Times bestseller list for 40 weeks, this “spellbinding” (Time) “page turner” (New York Times) tells the true story of the 19th-century whaleship Essex out of Nantucket that got rammed by one of the largest whales anyone had ever seen, the whale that inspired Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But the story doesn’t end there. The ship sank, sending the crewmembers adrift for months as they faced storms, starvation, and disease. Award-winning author of more than ten books, Philbrick “has created an eerie thriller from a centuries old tale… Scrupulously researched and eloquently written, In the Heart of the Sea is a masterpiece of maritime history,” writes the New York Times. “It gets into your bones.”

            

On First Friday, February 7, 2020, The NEA Big Read will kick off with proclamations, art exhibits and special events in downtown Brunswick

followed by a month of unique programming with something for everyone to participate in.

Check back for the complete schedule of events that will be posted here. And to learn how you can be a part of this valuable and fun community-building initiative,
