riverbabble, 13, Bloom's Day issue, summer 2008


Sofa by Christopher Novak

June 16, Bloom's day, commemorates the day in 1904 when James Joyce and Nora Barnacle went on their first date. Incidentally, June 16, 1904 is also the date Leopold Bloom, the protagonist in Joyce's novel Ulysses, wandered through Dublin. Since 1929, many, many people have celebrated the day with events and festivals. And, since our first year, riverbabble has published a Bloom's day issue in celebration.
