Celebrate the life and works of writer James Joyce with the Irish American Heritage Center’s annual Bloomsday Celebration, Rattlin’ of the Joists this June. Josephine Craven directs.

The annual event includes performances with readings, music and song, presented by notables from Chicago’s theatre and music community, including Brad Armacost, Brendan Gregg, Vera Kelly, Brigid Duffy Gerace, Kevin Cassidy and Mark Piekarz.

On June 16, 1904, writer James Joyce met his future wife, Nora Barnacle and immortalized the date in his monumental epic, Ulysses. Modern Joyce aficionados have denoted June 16 "Bloomsday"; a day set aside throughout the world to honor the great man and his controversial and thought-provoking works. 

The 12th annual Rattlin’ of the Joists is Saturday, June 16 at 8pm at the IAHC and is a benefit for the IAHC. Donations are accepted. For more information, call the IAHC 773-282-7035.

Programming at the Irish American Heritage Center is supported, in part, by generous grants from The Illinois Arts Council, CityArts grants, from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Illinois Humanities Council.


The Irish American Heritage Center, which occupies an 86,000 square foot building on the City's northwest side, near Wilson Avenue and the Edens Expressway, at 4626 North Knox, fosters the practice, study and celebration of Irish, Celtic, and Irish-American cultural traditions. For more information, call 773-282-7035, or visit www.irish-american.org.

A BIG book is read (again) in little Baraboo!

The citizenry of Baraboo, WI (assisted by tourists and regional guests) will read James Joyce's novel Ulysses beginning at 8 am on Saturday June 16, 2012 in their 9th annual celebration of Bloomsday.

The entire book will be read aloud with everyone taking 1/2 hour turns at the 20th Century's most influential (and quite possibly its best) novel. As long as there is someone available to read, the event continues on. Organizers expect to complete the reading sometime on Monday, June 18.

This will be the 9th year that Ulysses is read in Baraboo, a small city of 12,000 nestled in the beautiful and ancient Baraboo Bluffs in Wisconsin's Driftless Area. Participants include city officials, college students, business owners, grandmas, campers from nearby Devils Lake, state politicians, news reporters, factory workers, and farmers. Special Joyce buttons and a celebratory 90th birthday cake will be offered to all intrepid participants.

This year, the event will again raise funds for the Baraboo Literacy Council. 

"We grew up on The Wisconsin Idea here. Significant cultural events are not just the property of large urban areas or even the 'educated'. Reading Ulysses aloud with friends, neighbors, the local principal, and the family dentist pretty much sums up what we're about" says event organizer Annie Randall of the Village Booksmith (a used bookstore with many free cultural events) where the reading takes place. "Besides, after 8 years of listening to Joyce's marvelous prose, we're starting to actually get it!"

31st Annual Marathon Celebration of James Joyce’s Ulysses

MUSIC IN BLOOM!

Hosted and Staged by Isaiah Sheffer

Symphony Space in partnership with the Irish Arts Center

Saturday, June 16 -- 7pm until after midnight

There’s no better way to greet summer than with Symphony Space’s 31st annual BLOOMSDAY ON BROADWAY, celebrating the life, love, and language in James Joyce's ULYSSES.  This year we pay tribute to the music and songs throughout Ulysses with “Music in Bloom.”  For the first time in Bloomsday on Broadway history, listen to a reading of the entire “Sirens” episode with full performances of the music central to the drama. 
Broadway star DAVID MARGULIES performs the role of Mr. Bloom and director-host ISAIAH SHEFFER narrates.  And, of course, no Bloomsday on Broadway would be complete without FIONNULA FLANAGAN bringing down the house with the final “yes” of the entire uncensored Molly Bloom monologue. 


Tickets:  $25; Members $20;

UNDER 30 (with ID) only $15
