presents its
23nd Annual Syracuse James Joyce Club Bloomsday Celebration
at Nibsy's Pub, Syracuse, NY

Join members and friends of the Syracuse James Joyce Club on "Bloomsday," June 16th, for readings from Joyce's masterpiece Ulysses. Bloomsday, the anniversary of the 1904 day in which Ulysses is set, is celebrated by Joyce's admirers around the world with activities that include readings from the novel.

The Syracuse James Joyce Club is returning to the scene of an earlier Bloomsdays this year - Nibsy's Pub on Ulster Street at West Fayette Street in Syracuse for its 23d Bloomsday celebration from six to ten o’clock on the traditional day, June 16, a Thursday. Upstairs at Nibsy’s, the Club will present excerpts from all eighteen episodes (chapters) of James Joyce’s great novel Ulysses, considered by many to be the most important book of the twentieth century.

Excerpts from each episode will be read by members throughout the evening, and brief musical selections will also be presented.

The public is invited to attend, and there is no admission charge. Food and beverage service is available to be ordered from the pub.

For any questions or for more information, please call Marian Stanton, club president, at 315-593-9697.

The Syracuse James Joyce Club currently has eighty-eight members. With fortnightly meetings, it is one of the most active James Joyce clubs among 55 globally. Although there were nine people present at the founding meeting on the anniversary of Joyce's death, January 13th, 1994, it was founded by a 'father and son' team, well, in the metaphorical sense of Stephen Dedalus and his spiritual father and faithful friend, Leopold Bloom! The 'father' was Dick Long, a former Washington DC and Syracuse newspaperman, writer and TV producer. The 'son' part of the 'family' is Tom Lavoie. When he worked at Syracuse University Press, it was Tom's gentle, scholarly manner that led the neophytes through the beginning of Ulysses.
