Irish House Ready for Bloomsday



To most, today, June 16, might just be another Tuesday. But for James Joyce fans around the world, June 16 marks the ever-important literary celebration, Bloomsday. In commemoration of the Irish writer’s novel Ulysses, The Irish House (1432 St. Charles Ave.) will be hosting a reading of the epic story. Writers and literary enthusiasts from across the city will come out to narrate excerpts of the famously dense, Ulysess.
