For Leopold Bloom it is June 16th 1904. For us, June 16th 2012, in a year that marks the 90th anniversary of the publication of James Joyce's Ulysses. The 16th of June has come to be known as Bloomsday, by fans of Joyce and the literary community because it chronicles a single day in the life of Mr. Bloom. To celebrate, the Carl Cherry Center hosts Bloomsday, which kicks off with the showing of "Bloom," a feature film adaptation of Joyce's work Ulysses. Then at 6pm the Cherry staff invite Joyce fans in for Irish/Celtic fare, readings from Ulysses, live music, and best of all: cold Guinness. Preorder tickets for $15, or pay $20 at the door; price includes film and all of the festivities that follow. (See Lit story.) [GS]
