  1. Jean O'Sullivan says:

    The Paris Bloomsday Group is also celebrating James Joyce’s birthday with an entertainment at The Highlander (8 rue de Nevers, 75006 Paris), with excerpts from Dubliners, A Portrait, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake, interspersed with songs. Lyrics will be provided. We are a day late, on 3 February.

    The Paris Bloomsday group is a Paris-based trio of Irish academics and editors (Michael Gradwell, Declan McCavana and Jean O’Sullivan) who have been meeting regularly for over a decade to read from Joyce’s work (usually on Bloomsday).

    The group celebrated Joyce’s birthday a year ago when he had just come out of copyright and have decided to continue the tradition.

    Eight excerpts from Dubliners, A Portrait, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake, will be interspersed with songs With poet Derry O’Sullivan as M.C., the entertainment aims to appeal to both neophytes and Joyceans.

  2. In conjunction with this special day we will begin to register runners for the 30th Unabridged edition of the James Joyce Ramble on February 2nd. Wishing you all the best for a bright and most happy 2013. We hope to see some of you in Boston on April 28.
