Sunday Morning in Soho: The Start of Day Three of the "Moby Dick" Marathon Reading at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe

While we know some hardy sailors were aboard for the full three-day, 25-hour voyage of this weekend's marathon reading of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, at our age we didn't have the endurance or sea legs for that.
We were teaching at FIT on Friday night and so entirely missed the start of the reading with Paul Dano starting off with "Call me Ishmael" at Greenpoint's wonderful WORD Bookstore, and we were at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe yesterday only for about chapters 41-47, entirely and regrettably missed being at Molasses Books in Bushwick from 4 p.m. to midnight yesterday, but we were back at Housing Works when the reading of Melville's masterpiece began anew at 10 a.m. today with Ryan Davidson starting on chapter 100.
More coming . . .
