Bloomsday week will run from the 10th – 16th June this year, and the Joyce Centre in association with many others is finalizing the complete programme. We will be releasing tit-bits of information on our blog, facebook and twitter pages until the final programme is released in early May so keep your eyes peeled.

Salvage Press The Works of Master Poldy
A new printing enterprise in Dublin, The Salvage Press, is planning to publish the first-ever compendium of Leopold Bloom’s quips and musings this Bloomsday. Molly Bloom imagined just such a book in her rambling ‘Penelope’ episode (Gabler, line 580), a book she dubbed “The Works of Master Poldy.” The Salvage Press has launched an online fundraising campaign to bring out The Works of Master Poldy in a beautiful hand-printed edition produced entirely in Dublin.

Digital Dubliners
Digital Dubliners is a guide to Joyce’s stories written for students by students, which hopes to bring a new reading experience to today’s classroom and to your home. Led by Professor Joe Nugent, fifteen students from Boston College are creating this fascinating digital product, at once an introductory guide to Dubliners, to literary criticism and to Joyce himself.
