Reading Molly


8 March 2023

In celebration of International Women’s Day, the James Joyce Centre hosted ‘Reading Molly,’ a public reading of Molly Bloom’s famous soliloquy from Ulysses. This extraordinary final chapter, ‘Penelope’, brings out all the wit and passion of one of the finest passages of writing in modern literature.

From 11am to 1pm guests dropped into the Maginni Room to read ‘Penelope’. Tea and seedcake were served and some guests even sat on a bed set up in the middle of the room, one that resembled Molly’s.
