Help Read Melville’s Moby Dick This Weekend: on the Beach!


Re-posting as a reminder – this is happening NOW. This event is as good as Venice gets! Go participate or just support the readers!

The Venice Oceanarium will begin its annual ocean side reading of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick (first published on Oct. 18, 1851) at 8am on Saturday, November 23rd. The group will read until 10pm or so and then regroup on Sunday the 24th to finish the novel, which usually happens between 9 and 10 pm.
