5th Annual Bloomsday Marathon Reading

For the 5th year running, Upshur Street is the only place in the world where you can celebrate Bloomsday with a completely uncut 32-hour marathon reading of ULYSSES by James Joyce on June 15th and 16th, co-hosted by Petworth Citizen and Loyalty Books.

We'll start at noon on Saturday, June 15th, and read until we finish- probably between 7-8pm. We have 30+ readers lined up, including DC actors, NPR personalities, and local Joyce fans.

Admission is FREE, and there will be snacks and drinks available for donation.
