Marathon reading (30 hours) of James Joyce’s masterpiece Ulysses starts 5pm at Petworth Citizen


“Ulysses Uncut
Jun 15 at 5:00pm to Jun 17 at 12:00am
Petworth Citizen
829 Upshur Street, NW

Join us for a MARATHON reading of James Joyce’s masterpiece Ulysses. That’s right, that means we’re reading the entire book, from start to finish. It will run for approximately 30 hours from June 15 at 5pm through the evening of June 16. We’ll have coffee, Irish whiskey, and food aplenty, including specialty cocktails, two breakfasts, and – during opening hours – Petworth Citizen’s usual delicious menu.

It’s our first Bloomsday event – and the only marathon reading in DC! – and we want you to be part of it!
