Bloomsday is on its way to Worcester

Attention all lit-marathoners in the New England states:

The Worcester County Poetry Association has scheduled  their twentieth "Bloomsday Ramble," Tuesday, June 16.

The Bloomsday Ramble is a marathon reading of (sections of) James Joyce's Ulysses. The Ramble makes a number of stops around downtown Worcester, running from 8:00 AM to about 10:00 PM. Come and go as you please.

I've blogged about this before. It's a small, low-key marathon—everyone reads, everyone is friendly, everyone has fun.

Bring a copy of Ulyssess, if possible, and a lawn chair or blanket.

It's official...

The 2016 Moby-Dick Marathon will run from Friday, Jan. 8, through Sunday, Jan. 10. This will be the twentieth MDM—we can expect something special from the the dedicated and talented staff of the Whaling Museum.

Mark your calendars and prepare!
