Global Bloomsday Festival and Radio Bloomsday!

This year the James Joyce Centre in Dublin is presenting a 36 hour Global Bloomsday festival featuring webcasts from Bloomsdays all over the world.  Beginning in Australia, the webcast features 25 cities across four continents.  Radio Bloomsday is representing New York City and you can watch our webcast online at

We will be reading an excerpt from the Circe episode of Ulysses where Leopold Bloom stumbles into a brothel and has a sadomasochistic encounter with the gender shifting Madame Bella Cohen.  T. Ryder Smith, Aaron Beall, and fiddle player extraordinaire Marie-Louise Bowe will be performing the excerpt webcast live from 1.30 to 2.15pm.

Earlier on Bloomsday morning, WBAI arts director Janet Coleman will interview our two mollies Caraid O'Brien and Bernadette Quigley about their process preparing Molly Bloom's three hour monologue as a dialogue at 11am on and 99.5FM in New York City.
