Call Me Ishmael — Call This Number to Talk About a Book You Love

Posted on November 23, 2015 at 4:34 am

Call Me Ishmael (the name taken from the first line of Moby Dick) is a new crowd-funded project that invites everyone to call in to talk about a book they love. This is not a book report. It doesn’t have to be fancy or erudite. It’s like talking to a friend about a really great book that moved you or inspired you or made you laugh or cry. You can listen to comments about books from The Fault in Our Stars and The Catcher in the Rye to Man’s Search for MeaningThe Storied Life of A. J. Fikry and From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (I love it when she says, “Go read it, go read it, go read it!”)

Is there a book you love?  Call 774-325-0503 and tell Ishmael about it.
