The museum will hold its 20th annual nonstop reading of Herman Melville’s classic novel, “Moby-Dick,” beginning midday Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016, and ending about 25 hours later on Sunday. More than 150 volunteers plan to recite aloud short snippets of the novel in the cover-to-cover reading. (AP Photo/Stephan Savoia, File)
