22nd Annual Moby-Dick Marathon

One of the world’s best known readings of Herman Melville’s iconic American novel “Moby-Dick” returns to the New Bedford Whaling Museum January 5-7, 2018. The 22nd Annual Moby-Dick Marathon attracts thousands of people each year to the Museum’s campus and to the livestream reading online. The 25-hour marathon takes place in several Whaling Museum galleries and across the street in the Seamen’s Bethel, made famous in Melville’s classic as the Whaleman’s Chapel. The Museum incorporates two mini-marathons on January 6: a Portuguese-language reading of Tiago Patricio’s abridged Moby-Dick; and a children’s version by Classic Starts.
