Featuring Ambassador Daniel Mulhall and Robert Aubry Davis
This year our in person Bloomsday event celebrates the Centenary of Ulysses, the book that impacted modern literature by influencing thousands of others and created an academic industry of James Joyce Scholars.
Our event, Bloomsday 2022, features superb readers including H.E. Daniel Mulhall, Ambassador of Ireland to the United States and Robert Aubry Davis, host of the PBS Around Town Program.
We will read the opening of Ulysses, the most dramatic chapter, Cyclops, and the end of the book, the close of Molly Bloom's soliloquy, the most famous ending in all of literature.
Registration starts at 6:00pm ET to allow initial food and drink orders before the program begins with an introduction by Ambassador Mulhall (whose book, Ulysses: A Reader's Odyssey, published in January of this year is a best seller).
We expect this event to sell out so please be sure to get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
