Today is Bloomsday, the day of celebration for James Joyce's tome, Ulysses. (The novel follows protagonist Leopold Bloom through Dublin over the course of one day, June 16, 1904.)  Below I have included some links to Bloomsday articles, posts and activities to commemorate Joyce's iconic work.  Most of them are brief and include additional links, so they are definitely worth a glance.  At the very least, I recommend listening to a rare recording of James Joyce reading from Ulysses or Irish actress Marcella Riordan reading of the last 50 lines of the book, often referred to as Molly's soliloquy, and taking a glance at Ulysses Unseen, an electronic comic book version of the novel. Happy Bloomsday!

It's Bloomsday! Listen to Molly's Soliloquy!
