Bloomsday 2014

Once again, if you enjoy a "literature marathon" and you live near Worcester, MA, try the Bloomsday (June 16) reading of Ulysses (portions of), staged by the Worcester County Poetry Association. Mark your calendar for 2015.

In contrast to the MDM, it's a small, informal, one-day affair that moves all over downtown Worcester. Plenty of opportunities to be "the reader", and you end up chatting with all the participants. Lovely folks, interesting city, fascinating text.

N.B. - Bloomsday is not their only event. Check their website.
