Bloomsday is a celebrated annually across the world, (Ireland, Hungary, Italy, Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, United Kingdom and France) to commemorate the life of Irish novelist and poet, James Joyce, and the fictitious events in his novel, Ulysses. Joyce is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the 20th century. The story takes place in Dublin during a single day, June 16, 1904. The word Bloomsday is derived from the name of the protagonist in the book, Leopold Bloom. Joyce chose the date as it was the date of his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle, as they walked in the Dublin suburb of Ringsend. This year’s event will feature theatrical readings, Irish music, bagpipes, food and beer, wine and soft drinks. No admission is charged.
