Joycephiles meet to celebrate Bloomsday

Armstrong Atlantic State University’s (AASU) Irish Studies Club celebrated the 3rd Annual Bloomsday Celebration yesterday evening atKevin Barry’s Pub, located on West River Street, in Savannah, Georgia. Frank Clancy, assistant professor of literature at AASU, read from and lead a discussion of James Joyce’s novel, Ulysses. The Irish Studies Club has met from time to time for lectures on Irish literature, films, history, and politics. It is open to those in the community interested in Irish culture.

The event began at 7pm and was still going on when yours truly had paid his tab and traipsed downstairs, pausing to listen to J.J. Smith play the guitar and sing Irish songs, and query lovely dark-haired and svelte Tietjen about the family and founding of the fine establishment which had hosted the small gathering of Joycians. For more information or to become a member, call Frank Clancy at 912.921.5624.
