Bloomsday in Berkeley 

When: Sat., June 15, 5-10 p.m. and Sun., June 16, 2-6 p.m. 2013
Price: $20-$25

Bloomsday in Dublin is an annual event that celebrates the life of author James Joyce on the day that the events of his epic novel Ulysses are set. It's traditionally filled with readings, dramatizations, and a retracing of Ulysses protagonist Leopold Bloom's route around Dublin --essentially a theatrical pub crawl in Edwardian attire. While attendees of the Bloomsday in Berkeley at the Garden Gate Creativity Center (2911 Claremont Ave., Berkeley) won't be able to walk the same streets as those in Joyce's tome, the event will include staged readings, a performance of the theater piece Portrait of the Artist's Mother by Dublin artist Marion McEvoy, and plenty of Joyce love.
