Bloomsday: Lecture and Reading Events




Event Description

Bloomsday is a commemoration and celebration of the life of the Irish writer James Joyce during which the events of his novel Ulysses (which is set on 16 June 1904) are relived. It is observed annually on 16 June in Dublin and many cities around the world.

Professor James Heffernan will give a free, in-depth talk on Leopold Bloom, the hero of James Joyce's celebrated novel Ulysses, to commemorate Bloomsday in Santa Fe.

Also on Sunday, from 9am to 1:00pm, and again directly after the lecture, we will be playing at the Foundation an audio recording of Ulysses, with books available for visitors to read along.
