Over the Moby-Dick festival weekend events are taking place at the Merseyside Maritime Museum, at the Museum of Liverpool, and on board the Kathleen and May, the schooner moored in the Canning Half-Tide Dock. The historic ship will be the atmospheric setting for the first and last sessions of the marathon reading of Moby-Dick (reading schedule is here), and for Terror on the High Seas (Sunday May 5th, 2pm-3pm and 3.30pm-4.30pm Merseyside Maritime Museum), a storytelling by children’s author Jon Mayhew, who reveals his love of the sea and what lurks beneath! Expect spooky tales of the Mersey, terrible smells and shocking sights! Also a sneak preview of Jon’s about-to-be-published book, Monster Odyssey.
If you go on board the Kathleen and May and take some pictures, why not share them on the Kathleen and May Flickr group?
