To James Joyce and his literary heritage,  I would like to propose a modest celebration tomorrow. June 16th is commonly known as "Bloomsday" among his followers. It is the day in 1904 that Joyce based his novel Ulysses, the day he would have a date with Nora in Dublin.

At FOG from 4 o'clock 'till closing, anyone wanting to read a selection, sing a song, drink a libation, or just revel in this extraordinary book is welcome.  -Peter
