The local event will include academic symposia, Irish music, bagpipes, food, wine, a silent auction and general Irish merriment. Theatrical readings from the works of James Joyce will be performed by several actors, including Jason Bayle and Michael Kutcher, of Swine Palace, as well as Dave Besse and Helen Hoffpauir.
