Another option online: Frank Delaney, the Irish author and BBC host, has just completed a full year of his Re:Joyce podcasts (and not a minute too soon). They are available here. Delaney is also offering a free copy of Ulysses to the person with the “most illuminating summary” of the novel in 140 characters or less. Just include the hashtag #FDBloomsday in your tweet, and get it in by midnight tonight.

Some other ideas:
If you live in New York, Boston, Chicago, DC, or LA, then download a Bloomsday map of your city here and see where it takes you.
If you’re interested in comics, you might prefer to read the novel in this format instead.
You can find out more information about Radio Bloomsday here, where the hosts are interpreting Ulysses this evening. They’ll be broadcasting at 7pm EST on WBAI (99.5FM in New York) and at 7pm PST on KPFK (90.7FM in LA). You can also hear it online at wbai.org.
Happy Bloomsday, everyone!
