You’re never too young to be introduced to one of the greatest books ever written – and that’s exactly what the James Joyce Centre will do with Ulysses for Kids! Through performance, song, and storytelling, we bring the child characters in Joyce’s Ulysses to life and explain the elements at the heart of the book – the importance of curiosity and learning to respect others; the trickiness of family relationships and love; and why everyone needs a place to call home.
