The annual reading of Moby Dick will take place this weekend at the Venice Beach breakwater.
The Venice Oceanarium, which describes itself as a “museum without walls” and holds frequent events in Venice devoted to informing people on ocean life, has held the Moby Dick event since 1995. Herman Melville’s epic book is read continuously by volunteers from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Anyone who wishes to read or just listen is welcome to stop by the breakwater, out from Windward Avenue.
The reading takes places in November in conjunction with the California gray whale migration from Baja California to Alaska.
