Some say that James Joyce's book Ulysses is one of the greatest books ever written. What better way to celebrate a timeless book than to have a tremendous celebration. Cities around the world including Dublin, Joyce's home town are dedicating June 16 as Bloomsday. Thousands of "Joyceans" are expected to flock to Dublin to pay homage to the great book.
The story of Ulysses describes in minute detail the day in the life of Leopold Bloom as he spends the day wandering around Dublin in 1904. (What do you think of Ulysses? Discuss this topic in our Community Forums.)
