KPFA presents a centenary celebration of "Bloomsday" with a marathon reading of James Joyce’s Ulysses beginning at 8 pm Wednesday June 16th, and through the night to dawn, closing with the infamous Molly Bloom Soliloquy. 100 actors will gather on New York’s Broadway to read selections from the novel that plotted the course of modern literature, and wound up in the
courts in the fight about indecency versus free speech and freedom of the
press. Readers include Frank and Malachy Mc Court and the incomparable
Fionnula Flanagan as Molly Bloom. Hosted by Susan Stone of KPFA’s Arts and
Humanaties department.
