Join us for a continuous reading of Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, Or The Whale.

Nat Philbrick kicks the festivities off by reading the first chapter on Saturday Nov. 16 at 10 am at the Atheneum. And, when the reading concludes on Sunday we’ll celebrate with chowder and a Whale’s Tale Pale Ale.

We need readers for the other 134 chapters! Please stop by the Atheneum Main Desk to claim your spot.
I hope you will join us as a reader and encourage your friends too.
Please let me know what you’d like to read.
To start, we ask that people pick no more than 2 chapters. When we get a bit closer if there are slots available readers are welcome to take on more.
You can also call me at 508-228-1110 ext 118 or email to sign up.
The Moby Dick Marathon is cosponsored with the Nantucket Historical Association and the final event in the 2019 celebration of Herman Melville’s 200th Birthday.
