So excited to announce an event I have been wanting to do for years...
To celebrate the life of Irish writer JAMES JOYCE and his groundbreaking novel ULYSSES, Wordier Than Thou, StandUpLibrarian.com and Wilson's Book World present BLOOMSDAY - BYOBook on Monday, June 16 from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. at Wilson's.
Hosted by Stand-Up Librarian Meredith Myers and Jeff Morris of Wilson's Book World, BLOOMSDAY - BYOBook will feature readings from Ulysses and performances honoring Joyce, plus offer a variety of Irish-themed refreshments all with the mission to unite the community in reading one of the most important works of modernist literature. The event is completely FREE and will also feature special Bloomsday/James Joyce-inspired literary accessories by Stand-Up Librarian Designs.
|Your literary hosts Meredith Myers & Jeff Morris.|
"Think of this night as one kick-ass book club
because if you are going to read a tough novel like Ulysses,
why not do it with a Guinness in one hand and a microphone in the other?
St. Petersburg, get your books out and let's JOYCE Around!"
- Stand-Up Librarian Meredith Myers
