Melville House at the Modern Language Association
This past weekend, we packed a car full of novellas, Neversinks, and Last Interviews and set off to Boston for the annual Modern Language Association conference. This was the first time Melville House exhibited, and we enjoyed meeting professors who teach our books — including those of Hans Fallada (Resistance Writings in Nazi Germany at Stanford), Mary MacLane (Turn of the Century Women Writers at Virginia Tech) and of course, Bartleby the Scrivener (everywhere).
