2019 OLLI Bloomsday Celebration

Friday, June 21, 2019

1:00 - 4:00 PM

OLLI, 4801 Massachusetts Ave. NW - Room A

This year we will be reading chapters 5 (Lotus Eaters), 6 (Hades) and 7 (Aeolus) of Ulysses; it will be followed by an off-site cast party to which all attendees are invited. Our reading begins as Joyce's Ulysses anti-hero, the curiosity-filled Leopold Bloom, sets out on his odyssey across Dublin on a quest to "follow knowledge like a sinking star, beyond the utmost bound of human thought" (to quote Tennyson whom Joyce otherwise didn't much appreciate).  

Further information and attached text and chapter plot summaries for this reading are available at Bloomsday by OLLI 2019 (as well as access to the text and plot summaries of earlier chapters read last February).
