"Bloomsday" is an internationally celebrated day focused on appreciating James Joyce’s Ulysses. The name comes from the book's protagonist, Leopold Bloom, and the date is chosen because the book takes place in one day, on June 16th. In honor of Bloomsday, the Rosenbach Museum & Library presents a free, all-day reading from Ulysses. Grab your copy of Ulysses and sit with hundreds of fellow lovers of literature to revel in the genius of Joyce.
