Oakland- The Seated Diesels discuss "The Confidence Man"

Oakland Events

The Seated Diesels at Diesel, A Bookstore in OaklandDiesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Seated Diesels back to the store to discuss The Confidence Man: His Masquerade by Herman Melville on Tuesday, January 13th at 7pm.

Herman Melville's The Confidence-Man: His Masquerade was the tenth, last, and most perplexing book of his decade as a professional man of letters. After it he gave up his ambitious effort to write works that would be both popular and profound and turned to poetry. The book was published on April 1--the very day of its title character's April Fools' Day masquerade on a Mississippi River Steamboat.

This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!
