misc_none 10:00 AM  -  11:45 AM Bloomsday Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Kristina England   5085663518   kristina.england@gmail.com
   
Bloomsday is an annual ramble where participants read through various parts of James Joyce's Ulysses now in its 21st year in Worcester.  Lots of cities around the world have been holding some sort of Bloomsday celebration for decades.  The Worcester version involves readings in several locations approximating the sites visited by the characters of the novel in their own ramble through Dublin, June 16, 1904.  
 
The day features a changing cast of characters - much like Ulysses.  Everyone is welcome to read or listen.  Some participants drop in for one or two sessions and those with more stamina (and free time) will make a day & night of it.  Although lectures and performances are incorporated into the Worcester programming leading up to June 16, Bloomsday itself is a celebration of participatory readings - and that's half the fun! 
 
WCPA celebrates the spoken word, the written word, and the literary history of  Worcester - or makes history by starting a new tradition like the Bloomsday Worcester Ramble.  Sometimes, one of our members has a passion for a particular author or literary event like Bloomday and the entire community is welcome to join in.  We've had a lot of fun doing this over the years.  If anyone has comments about past Worcester Bloomsday celebrations, we'd be happy to post them.  Just email us!
 
We try to add new sites each year while revisiting perennial favorites like Ben Franklin's.  Our outdoor sites don't always have seating, so you might want to bring along a chair.  There are no admission fees for these sites but you have to pay for your own meals at lunch and dinner.
