Bloomsday is the day on which protagonist Leopold Bloom made his “odyssey” through Dublin in James Joyce’s celebrated and controversial novel, Ulysses. Every year, the Rosenbach Museum and Library joins with Joyce lovers throughout the world to celebrate “Bloomsday” on June 16.
Hundreds gather on Delancey Place for this event, which features readings from Ulysses by notable Philadelphians from the steps of the museum. This year District Attorney Lynne Abraham, NPR’s Marty Moss-Coane and Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell will be among the readers.
An exhibition of Joyce materials is also on view inside the museum, which is open to visitors all day.
