MDM20 on the horizon

MDM20 is now less than three weeks away. Here are some bits of info that have leaked out:
ex Wikipedia
  • Author Nathaniel Philbrick will be the first reader this year. He is well known for In the Heart of the Sea, the story of the whaleship Essex on which M-D is based (since rendered in film). 
  • There might be a live video stream of the marathon. (The museum's MDM page has a currently non-active link to a "livestream.")
  • The bulk of the reading will take place in the museum's new Harbor View Gallery. (I wonder where we all-night folks will spread our sleeping bags?)
Still no word on the Friday night lecturer. One name springs immediately to mind...
