Moby-Dick Marathon Reception at the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum
Friday, April 27
8:00 pm
The Provincetown Public Library will partner with the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum for the third annual Moby-Dick Marathon Reading to be held at the library April 27 to April 29.

The PMPM will host a reception on Friday, April 27 at 8 p.m., after the official start of the marathon. The reception is open to the public and will feature light refreshments. In addition, PMPM Executive Director Dr. K. David Weidner will once again participate in the Moby-Dick Marathon Reading by joining more than 120 others who will each read aloud a passage of Herman Melville’s classic over a 24-hour period.

“The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum is proud to partner with the Provincetown Library for the Moby-Dick Marathon,” said Dr. Weidner, PMPM Executive Director. “The classic tale that takes place during the whaling era in the mid-1800’s, reflects a period that was a large part of Provincetown’s rich history. The marathon reading is a great event that brings people together over a shared enthusiasm for the book and to support our extraordinary library.”
