THE DIAL: saturday, june 15 >> 6pm

James Joyce’s Ulysses first appeared in print in the pages of Margaret Anderson's avant-garde literary magazine, The Little Review, between 1918 and 1921. In 1921 the Post Office seized copies of the magazine and refused to distribute them on the grounds that Ulysses constituted  obscene material. Anderson ended up having to go to trial over the matter. The Little Review began its life in our current home, The Fine Arts Building. Join us for a very special celebration of Ulysses, Margaret Anderson and the literary legacy of the Fine Arts Building, featuring Liesl Olson in conversation with Adam Morgan. More info here.
