Saturday is Bloomsday!

Crescent City Books will host a 12-hour marathon reading of James Joyce’s Ulysses this Saturday, June 16, at the Irish House (1432 St. Charles Ave.) in celebration of your favorite literary nerd holiday and mine, Bloomsday!

The event encourages folks young and old, bookish and barely literate, to take part in the reading of one of the greatest works of literature of all time in honor of its creator. The Guinness will be flowing and the <<insert stereotypical/traditional Irish food>> will abound.
