The spirit of Joyce is upon us! That's right, it's that time of year again, when the litterati of Philadelphia come out of their burrows and come together in the spirit of brotherhood to... perform public readings of Ulysses. No, but really, it's super fun!! June 16th marks the international phenomenon known as Bloomsday, hosted here in Philly by the Rosenbach Museum & Library, which houses the original handwritten manuscript of Ulysses. Hundreds gather on Delancey Place for this event, which features readings from Ulysses by notable Philadelphians from the steps of the museum. An exhibition of Joyce materials is also on view inside the museum, which is open to visitors all day. Philadelphia's Bloomsday at the Rosenbach is one of the cultural highlights of the season, drawing hundreds of friends, neighbors, Joyce enthusiasts, book-lovers, and curious passersby to Delancey Place throughout the day. June 16, 2009 will mark the 17th annual Bloomsday at the Rosenbach – an event that is not to be missed! The Writers House is taking a collective field trip to the event (at 2008-2010 DeLancey Place), so if you want to show your love of the House whilst showing your love of Joyce at the same time, meet us there at 1:30pm. Edwardian dress optional.
