Bloomsday

June 16 is celebrated internationally as Bloomsday. In Ulysses James Joyce creates one day in the life of Leopold Bloom, June 16, 1904.

June 16 2019 also happens to be Father’s Day in the United States. If you’re not a father?

“Every life is in many days, day after day. We walk through ourselves, meeting robbers, ghosts, giants, old men, young men, wives, widows, brothers-in-love, but always meeting ourselves.”

James Joyce

The biggest celebration, of course, takes place in Dublin. But there are events around the world. The Rosenbach Museum in Philadelphia, USA will feature a day-long reading of Ulysses with literati, public figures, and musical performances.
