Celebrating Bloomsday on and offline


    Hour 2

    Leopold Bloom’s walk around Dublin on June 16, 1904 will be celebrated tomorrow, Bloomsday. What could be an ordinary day for many, this day in James Joyce’s novel has captivated and confounded many readers for almost 90 years. We’ll talk with Joyce scholar MICHAEL BARSANTI and comic book artist ROBERT BERRY, co-creators of an Apple IPad app called “Ulysses Seen,” about why this story remains a literary favorite and how new technology may make this a more digestible ‘read.’
