The Literacy Project Celebrates James Joyce - Bloomsday Literary Festival
9th Annual Bloomsday event, pub-style, along with multitudes around the globe. Revelers can enjoy lively music by Rosie Caine and The Wilde Irish Women and readings from James Joyce’s Dubliners. Sample a desert and cheese bar. There will be songs, stories and decidedly Irish pints.
Unlike other Bloomsdays, however, The Literacy Project’s underlying motivation for bringing Bloomsday to Western Massachusetts for its ninth year is to make revelers and others aware of TLP’s organization and mission, which is to provide free adult learning services—basic reading skills; high school equivalency exam prep; and college and work readiness programs through classes and on-line learning—to residents of Franklin and Hampshire counties.
