This free event will bring together over 120 participants at the Provincetown Library to read Melville’s classic work aloud over a total of 24 hours. Last year’s inaugural edition of the Marathon was a tremendous success, bringing more than 500 visitors to the Library. The three day event unites members of Provincetown’s literary, art, theater and academic communities.
