Thanks to everyone who came out for our annual reading of James Joyce's seminal work, Ulysses, in what is affectionately known as Bloomsday. Whether you read a bit, listened, came for only one stop or marathoned through the entire day we couldn't do it without you.
A big shout out to the host committee, Kristina England, Jay Lavelle, and Anne Marie Lucci. Special acknowledgement to the business that allowed us to use their space - Annie's Book Stop, Boynton Restaurant, Espress Yourself Cafe, Tatnuck Grille, and Worcester Public Library.
Here's to next year, when Worcester's Bloomsday turns 22.
