Bloomsday, June 16, 2014 at 60 Centre Street with the Hon. Gerard E. Lynch
Please join me and the Irish American Bar Association on June 16, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. in the rotunda of the New York State Courthouse at 60 Centre Street for IABANY's Fifth Annual Bloomsday Celebration. This event showcases James Joyce's masterwork, Ulysses, and Joyce's contribution to the First Amendment, and features the John Quinn Memorial address, named after the famed Irish lawyer who defended the publishers of Ulysses in New York in 1922. This year, the keynote address, entitled "Copyright, Creativity and the First Amendment," will be delivered by the Hon. Gerard Lynch, United States Court of Appeals Judge for the Second Circuit, and will be followed by readings from Ulysses. A private reception will be held from 7:30pm to 9:30pm in the beautiful Granite Room at City Hall Restaurant, located at 131 Duane Street, a short walk from the courthouse, and will include an open bar and passed hors-d'oeuvres.
The Rotunda event is free, but requires registration. The City Hall Restaurant reception carries a charge to offset the cost of the event, and requires registration and payment. This event sells out quickly, so please register early here.
