Celebrating Bloomsday!

By Michelle S. RSS Mon, June 16, 2014

On June 16, James Joyce fans around the world celebrate Bloomsday, which is so named after Leopold Bloom, the main character in Joyce's epic, genre-smashing novel, Ulysses. And we're getting in the fun, too!

All day today, the Free Library and the Rosenbach are hosting public readings of Ulysses--from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Parkway Central Library, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in Rittenhouse Square, and from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Rosenbach of the Free Library, 2008-2010 Delancey Place. Join us in fêting Joyce's immortal words as read aloud by some of Philadelphia's most recognizable personalities. And to get in on even more Bloomsday action, check out the full listing of Bloomsday Festival events taking place throughout the week!
