Presenting fifteen excerpts from the book that The Modern Library ranked first on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century, the two-hour presentation will encapsulate the events of 16 June 1904 as experienced by Stephen Dedalus, Leopold and Molly Bloom, and a host of other characters from James Joyce’s Dublin. As in previous years, the emcee for the evening will be Chicago playwright and novelist Jeff Helgeson, and the readings will feature a number of local actors, as well as authors whose works have been published by Puddin’head Press.
Voted “Best Irish Pub” in 2010 by City’s Best Chicago, The Galway Arms is the ideal setting for the 8th annual Bloomsday reading sponsored by Puddin’head Press.
