Bloomsday in Washington, D.C.

Bloomsday Ulysses Reading with Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington D.C.

Sunday, June 16, 2024 – 3:00pm

Join us as we celebrate Bloomsday! Participate in our own mini-marathon reading of James Joyce’s Ulysses, the famous novel that rambles around Dublin. Marathon readings of this modernist masterpiece can go on for days, but P&P’s little version will last just over an hour. Volunteer to read a short prepared portion of the novel as straight or as fulsome as you wish. The emphasis is on having fun, so don’t worry about having to accurately pronounce names or placenames – we provide a helpful guide.

Newcomers to Ulysses are especially welcome. Small spot prizes for all participants!

This event is free with first come, first serve seating.
