Thank you all - filmgoers, Street Beat poets, readers and ramblers - for another great Worcester celebration of James Joyce and Ulysses. This year, the Worcester Ramble was dedicated to one of its founders, Angela Dorenkamp, who died on April 20.
We were happy to see so many familiar faces from Bloomsdays past and to welcome many new friends to the event. Enjoy the photos!
