Yes you will, Yes!

Go to the Rosenbach Museum this afternoon for the 100th anniversary celebration of Bloomsday!

Happy birthday Leopold Bloom and Molly whose one day odyssey on June 16, 1904 is plotted out in James Joyce’s “Ulysses.” (image is photo of Joyce)

Rosenbach Museum, which is the repository of Joyce’s hand-written manuscript of the book, celebrates Bloomsday each year with readings from the book. The readings take place from noon to 7:30 pm on the front stoop of the museum, a very Philadelphia place to read. (Rain Location: Temple Beth Zion-Beth Israel, 18th & Spruce Sts.)

See the Rosenbach for more, including a list of celebrity readers (e.g., Mayor Street and former police commissioner John Timoney (a Dubliner by birth)).
