It's Bloomsday today, a time for fans of James Joyce's epic novel 'Ulysses' to celebrate and read aloud sections of the book. The story of Ulysses takes place all on June 16th, 1904. It's set in Dublin, Ireland, and follows the adventures of several characters, including Leopold Bloom, Molly Bloom, and Stephen Dedalus. Here's Malachy McCourt doing a reading at Symphony Space in 1994.
