Mystic MDM This Weekend!

Mystic Seaport, "the nation's leading maritime museum," holds its Moby-Dick Marathon this Friday-Saturday, July 31-August 1.

This MDM is unique in that it is held aboard an actual whaleship, the Charles W. Morgan—"the last wooden whaleship in the world."

The 2015 Mystic MDM will be their 30th. (Yes, they've got ten years on New Bedford!) That, plus this being their first marathon aboard the completely restored Morgan, should result in an exceptional reading. Here's a clip from 2011.
