The Hammer Museum invites you to their fourth annual celebration of James Joyce's singularly difficult 1922 novel, "Ulysses."

From the Hammer website:

The Hammer's fourth annual Bloomsday celebration is fueled by the musicality and raucous dialogue defining the "Sirens" episode of James Joyce's Ulysses. A playful arrangement of words belies heavier meanings and reaches farther than the sexual appeal of two barmaids in this year's staged dramatic reading by actors Jane Bacon, Bairbre Dowling, James Gallo, James Lancaster, John Rafter Lee, and Johnny O'Callaghan.

The event also includes a Guinness Happy Hour, live Irish music from the Sweet Set, and a reading of the "Lestrygonians"portion of the novel. 2 - 8 p.m. Click the above link for more information and schedules.
