YoU Project Launch: Photos
Twas the eve before Bloomsday . . . speeches were short, Guinness abundant, and Joyce fans eager to chat at the MVP launch. Guests were able to check out the new website, discuss Joyce with Robert Amos and David Peacock, and admire the beautiful Joyce-inspired decorations at Peacock Billiards in Victoria, B.C. MVP Director Stephen Ross briefly introduced the new website and the Year of Ulysses project. He also announced the winners of the YoU Photo Competition. In short, a blooming grand time had by all.
Huge thank you to Michael Stevens for his excellent photography skills!
