Provincetown Public Library Moby-Dick Marathon Reading

April 21 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Provincetown will join New Bedford MA, Mystic CT, and New York City in celebrating its rich whaling heritage by hosting the second annual Provincetown Public Library Moby-Dick Marathon Reading in April 2017. Published in 1851, Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick chronicles the obsessive quest of Ahab, captain of the whaler Pequod, for revenge on a massive white whale responsible for destroying his ship and severing his leg at the knee during a previous voyage. The three-day marathon-style reading of this nineteenth century masterpiece will be held on the Provincetown Library’s Second Level on the starboard side of the Rose Dorothea Model, and officially begins at 2:00 pm on Friday, April 21. The full weekend schedule is as follows:

Friday, April 21: 2 pm to 8 pm
Saturday, April 22: 10 am to 10 pm
Sunday, April 23: 10 am to 4 pm
