As part of our Connecting Coastal Communities we launched our first Read-a-thon (reading marathon) on Saturday, January 9th, 2016. The Húsavík Ocean Crew (Project Participants) read whale related literature non-stop for 12 hours. On that very same day the New Bedford Whaling Museum had their Children’s Read-a-thon, within the three day period og their Annual Moby Dick Reading Marathon (which was held this year for the 30th time).
