Must take a moment to pause for writer James Joyce’s great work, Ulysses, as this day, June 16, is when the entire novel takes place. I enjoyed this from Garrison Keillor’s Writer’s Almanac today:

Most places [Bloomsday is] celebrated by pub crawls, street festivals, Irish music and food, public readings and dramatizations of Ulysses, and of course a host of scholarly panel discussions; the last part, at least, would come as no surprise to the author. He once said, “I’ve put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that’s the only way of ensuring immortality.”
