MDM21 is just ten days away!
Ye Marathon Virgins, check out this post from 2011 for the what/where/how of the Moby-Dick Marathon.
For 2017, you'll want to be there to hear the opening reader, Peter Gansevoort Whittemore—Melville's great-great-grandson and friend to blogging amateurs.
If you want to sit in the Seamen's Bethel for the dramatic reading of chapters 7, 8, and 9, you'll have to "win" a drawing. Enter now!
At present, the New Bedford Marriott has vacancies for Marathon weekend. If you can't make it in person, watch the video stream, live from noon Saturday until about 1 P.M. Sunday.
...and watch Twitter hashtag #mdm21.
