At Mystic Seaport, the “Moby-Dick” Marathon is a communal event that relies upon visitor participation. Participants are invited to read a chapter or two (or more!), or just sit back to listen.

Over the course of the marathon, other surprises await, including an actor portraying Herman Melville, the theatrical staging of certain chapters by the TaleMakers theatre troupe, and a live music performance.
