A Reading of Two Years Before the Mast

With the backdrop of the brig Pilgrim, a replica of the historic vessel that brought Richard Henry Dana Jr. to this coast, the Dana Point Historical Society, in collaboration with the Ocean Institute, presents the sixth public reading of the complete text of Dana’s book Two Years Before the Mast.

Over one hundred volunteer readers will read for eight to ten minutes each, completing the entire book in approximately 15 hours over three days.
