Billy Budd in the Breadbox, The Story of Herman Melville and Eleanor


Category: Tags: , ,


Jana Laiz, Arrowhead’s Writer-in-Residence, has written a delightful biography of Herman Melville and Eleanor, his granddaughter.  It was written (at Arrowhead!) for young adults, but can be enjoyed by readers of all ages.

Eleanor has a mystery to solve. Her beloved grandfather is hiding a secret, but where? Will she find it in the folds of his black coat? Tucked into his wiry gray beard? Or does it lie behind the sparkle in his eyes? Join curious Eleanor as she is transported into the stories, vivid imagination and heart of one of America’s greatest writers, Herman Melville, author of the legendary classic, Moby-Dick.
