Moby Dick Marathon Reading at Canio’s June 12 through 14

In celebration of  35 years of Canio’s Books, we’re bringing back the beloved marathon reading of Melville’s Moby Dick. Set for Friday, June 12 through Sunday, June 14 the event will celebrate the great American novel by Herman Melville. We’re also focusing on Sag Harbor’s literary traditions as well as the seafaring history of Southampton Town in honor of its 375th anniversary.

Canio Pavone, founder of Canio’s Books, began the tradition many years ago when participants read around the clock, some wearing pajamas. Back by popular demand, this year’s event includes a few changes. We won’t be staying up past midnight, and the reading will travel to different venues within Sag Harbor’s cultural district. The event begins and ends at Canio’s with stops at the Whaling Museum, Library, Customs House, Bay Street and other fun spots to be announced.  Plans are now underway for a whale of a celebration, with a closing party on Sunday. The event is also a fundraiser for Canio’s Cultural Cafe our 501c3 educational non-profit. Sign up to sponsor a chapter ($100. each) or to read. Contact the shop to be part of this historic event!
