The Berkshire County Historical Society and Herman Melville’s Arrowhead will host the fifth annual Moby-Dick Read-A-Thon from July 29 to Aug. 3.
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, readers will read aloud for 10 minutes, virtually, with the next reader picking up where the prior reader left off. Advanced sign-up is required at www.berkshirehistory.org/moby-dick-read-a-thon.
The event is free, but a $5 donation is suggested. Anyone who does not own a copy of “Moby-Dick” can purchase one through the Berkshire County Historical Society online shop at berkshire-county-historical-society.square.site; or go to www.powermobydick.com for a free online edition.
