    Bloomsday Celebration at Elk River Books James Joyce fans the world over mark each June 16 as Bloomsday, honoring the day the groundbreaking novel Ulysses takes place, chronicling the Dublin-wide odyssey of its central character, Leopold Bloom. Livingston’s Elk River Books joins the celebration with a performance of live theatre by the Caldera Theatre Company at the bookstore’s new home, 120 N. Main St., on Monday, June 16, at 7 p.m. The evening features the annual performance of Nighttown Suidae, Marc Beaudin’s adaption from an excerpt of the novel. The comedic play comes from the Circe episode, where Bloom follows Stephen Dedalus and his drinking companion, Lynch, to Dublin’s red light district. It’s a surreal revelry of poetic language and wild imagery. The reading runs roughly one hour and contains adult language and sexual references. With the audience calling out lines spoken by hallucinatory characters such as bedsprings, chickens and bars of soap, the play becomes a sort of Rocky Horror for the literary-minded. The cast for this year’s show includes Caldera members Marc Beaudin, Bret Kinslow, Sherry Pikul and Aaron Schuerr, and is rounded out by ZuZu Feder and Francis Wendt. The Mint Bar will provide a cash bar, serving the traditional Guinness as well as other Irish favorites. Admission to the performance is free, although donations for the cast are greatly appreciated. Elk River Books and the Wheatgrass Saloon (sharing the Main Street space) offer readings, book signings and other arts events, as well as a curated collection of used and new books, juices, smoothies, vegetarian lunches, cards, maps, journals, gifts and fair trade items. For more information call 333-2330 or visit ElkRiverBooks.com. More information on the Caldera Theatre Company can be found at calderatheatre.com.
