This special edition of New York's only site-specific Bloomsday breakfast mixes readings from "Ulysses," musical interludes, and special messages about the enduring meaning of Joyce's masterwork and of cities like Dublin and New York going back more than a century.

"Origin's 7th Bloom... @ Bloom's Tavern of Course!" -- produced by Origin Theatre Company... a grand tradition since 2014, commemorates the Dublin summer morning chronicled in James Joyce's landmark novel "Ulysses," which takes place in a single day, June 16, 1904.

James Joyce first serialized "Ulysses" beginning in 1918. Considered a masterpiece of modernism, it was banned in the U.S. before the book was published in its entirety in France in 1922. Bloomsday observances around the world date back to 1924, five short years after the last world pandemic.

Supported by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs through their Emigrant Services Program, and produced by Origin Theatre Company, "Origin's 7th Bloom... @ Bloom's Tavern of Course!" will be broadcast on Facebook live on Tuesday June 16 at 11am EST.
