This year, she’s reading parts of the Sirens chapter from Ulysses — the one that begins with hoofirons and ends with farts.

The reading is open to the public and jointly sponsored by the Harvard Club of Washington and American Independent Writers. Details here.

Sirens is the most musical chapter of the novel — and the novel is full of music. Little bits of two songs are featured in UD‘s reading. The songs are:

Martha (In English.)

This version of The Croppy Boy

She will try to sing them, as Simon Dedalus and then Ben Dollard sang them.

Here’s the Washington Post announcement of the event.

Bloomsday, New York City.
