“For the second year running, Upshur Street Books and Petworth Citizen are proud to pair up for BLOOMSDAY, a celebration of the author James Joyce. We’ll be doing a marathon reading of ULYSSES starting at 5pm Wednesday June 15th and finishing up around 12am Thursday June 16th. This year we’re also excited to partner with Third Floor, where some of the readings will take place (see below for location schedule).
Food by Chef Jerry Zawacki and drinks (including Irish whiskey of course) will be available in both locations.
We’ll have many many special guests reading passages – look for NPR personalities, professional storytellers, local actors and performers (Pointless Theatre Co. Rorschach Theatre and We Happy Few Productions), and many more!
LOCATION SCHEDULE: (all times approximate)
5pm-11pm Weds: THIRD FLOOR. 4200 9th St NW
11pm Weds – 12pm Thurs: PETWORTH CITIZEN
12pm-12am Thurs: THIRD FLOOR”
