2019 Moby Dick Reading Marathon

San Francisco Maritime Museum

Now an annual tradition, the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park hosts a 24-hour reading marathon of Herman Melville's classic novel "Moby Dick", considered by many to be one of the great American novels. The marathon is open, so you can join the cast of 100+ readers by signing up for a chapter or two, or simply take in the book surrounded by aquatic-themed murals and overlooking Aquatic Park.
