If you are not fortunate enough to live in and/or close to one of these in-the-flesh celebrations, consider celebrating with us on Twitter @11ysses for an all-day “tweading” of the great novel on June 16 and into the wee hours of June 17.

    (BTW: We love Isaiah Sheffer, and we love Bloomsday on Broadway. Hats off to their 30th anniversary! But on many Bloomsdays past, it was nearing 2am or later as we left UWS, with the lovely Ms. Flannagan’s dulcet reading lingering on our minds ears. That’s a long way home in the predawn hours, to the Ferry and beyond. Sure, we could have lingered in some cabmen’s shelter, but we decided to offer a Bloomsday gathering on our fair isle. If you’re in our neck of the woods, join us.)
