Venice Oceanarium Presently Reading Moby Dick

Hurry up, you still have time! Venice Oceanarium is still reading from Melville’s Moby Dick on the beach at the end of Windward today. They have whale bones, seats and lanterns set up … all they need is YOU. The reading should last until after dark this evening on the beach at the end of Windward.

Started in 1995, this 28 hour long annual reading welcomes volunteer readers and listeners to pull up a seat and read from the novel or just listen.
