On the beach, by the Breakwater Rocks in Venice, CaliforniaSince 1995, the Venice Oceanarium has invited readers to discover or rediscover the great literary masterpiece, Moby Dick. The detailed and realistic descriptions of whale hunting draw on Melville’s experience at sea, on his reading in whaling literature, as well as life aboard ship among a culturally diverse crew, mixed with exploration of class and social status, good and evil. In this annual event, folks gather on Venice Beach for a reading of Moby Dick. Everyone’s welcome to pull up a chair and listen, or even take a turn at reading a few pages.
