Kent M DPlease join us for our annual Moby-Dick Marathon from July 30 through Augus 4 in celebration of Herman Melville's 201st birthday weekend. Whether this is your first time reading the book, or your hundredth, you're welcome to join us!

This year we are pleased to announce we can still hold our annual marathon, now virtually. We will be starting on Thursday, July 30th and reading from 1pm-5pm EDT every day after that until we finish! Each reader will select a 10 minute time slot, and read aloud from where the previous reader left off.

Use the links listed at the bottom of the Marathon Web Page (click here or click the image to the right) to sign up for your 10 minute time slot virtually. You are welcome to register for more than one slot in a day and to sign up for multiple days.

If you don't already own a copy of Moby-Dick you can purchase one from our online shop, or use Power Moby-Dick for an online version.

We at Arrowhead are excited to bring the magic of where Herman Melville wrote Moby-Dick to your home for this marathon!

If you can't join us this year, please consider donating so we can continue this tradition!
