Ulysses

And they're off! My semester began with an unexpected treat.

I had the great pleasure Monday of talking to some of the people at the Rosenbach Museum in Philadelphia about a program they're developing for veterans and their children.

Helping them with their work was only half the fun, though. I also got to handle James Joyce's manuscript of Ulysses... which was awesome. The Penelope/Ithaca notebook gave me chills.
