It’s Moby-Dick Marathon Time! by Peter A. Mello

You really should try to make the Moby-Dick Marathon which begins shortly at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. It’s a great and unique experience in one of America’s most historic downtown districts. The event starts at noon and runs all through the night until about midday tomorrow. The majority of the reading takes place in the museum but this afternoon the crowd ambles across the street to the historic Seamen’s Bethel which is always a highlight. Get there early because the pews are as full as an Easter Sunday service!

In case you can’t make it, the museum has set up a live stream so you can experience it from the comfort of your own berth. Enjoy!
