Mission Impossible: War and Peace

As all good things must come to an end, so must our Mission Impossible: Ulysses blog.   Since the program has officially concluded, we’ll no longer add new posts here.  But alas, you can simply visit our Mission Impossible: War and Peace blog to start the fun again!  Kickoff for War and Peace is 6:30pm August 10, Main Library Community Meeting Room.  No registration.  No reading required.  Just come and see if you want to pick up another “impossible” book and join us for a new and exciting literary journey.  Regular meetings will start in September.  Check the War and Peace blog for more details in the coming weeks.

Evanston Review Article

We made it into yesterday’s issue of the Evanston Review!  Read it online or pick up a copy.  It’s exciting to see our achievements as a group highlighted in this way.  Kudos to all of you!

I Did Too Finish Ulysses

Beth from my Thursday group shared this great Argyle Sweater comic from last Saturday’s Chicago Tribune.  I just had to pass it along for your enjoyment.

Bloomsday Celebration

Bloomsday is nearly upon us!  As promised, I have some information about our June 16 celebration.  First, all are welcome, not just veterans of Mission Impossible.  We’ll have games, music, a raffle, and more.  Of course, we’ll talk about Ulysses.  The evening will also be an opportunity to pick up your certificate of completion and your mug if you bought one (if you can’t come, just stop by the Reference Desk after June 16).

The event will last from 6:30pm until about 8pm and will take place in the Main Library’s Community Meeting Room (First Floor).  It will be casual – stay for the entire time or drop in for a few minutes.  Registration is not required.  If you’re planning on stopping by the Celtic Knot afterward to continue the celebration, reservations are recommended.  Hope to see you on the 16th!

Questions?  Contact me at khansen@cityofevanston.org.

Ulysses “Seen” – Calypso

Ulysses “Seen” recently released a portion of “Calypso.”  It seems they’ve been skipping around a bit, so don’t expect to see “Nestor” or “Proteus.”  You can even subscribe to their blog to get email notifications about posts, including info about recently added material like this.
