Bloomsday at the Cliff Dwellers
Ulysses Readings and Live Musical Accompaniment

Join us for a program of James Joyce readings and an accompanying musical performance in celebration of Bloomsday and James Joyce.  Presented by Cliff Dwellers members and Produced by Richard Reeder.

Ulysses is a modernist novel by the Irish writer James Joyce, originally published in Paris in 1922.  Its famously-demonstrated stream of consciousness technique, along with its careful structuring and literary allusions have made it one of the most celebrated novels written in the English language.

The date of June 16th, the setting of Ulysses, is an annually-celebrated event (especially in Dublin) known as Bloomsday, which takes it’s name from the novel’s protagonist, Leopold Bloom.  (For logistical reasons, our celebration of Bloomsday will take place the day before, on June 15th.)

We dedicate this performance to the memory of Steve Diedrich and Claudia Traudt.
