Reading Groups
Dedicated to the works of James Joyce, our reading groups bring together people who love Irish literature and its limitless potential for discussion, learning and self-discovery.

Finnegans Wake or The Boaters and Sifters of ALP

Inaugurated in March 2015, the group meets on the third Wednesday of every month.

Happy 2 year anniversary to us! Catch Up! Last time, we reached the end of page 27. We’ll start here next time we meet — “I’ve an eye on queer Behan and old Kate and the butter, trust me…”

Group leaders Megan Abley and Dominic Richard created a welcoming discussion-based environment designed to help everyone deepen their understanding of this penetrating and mysterious novel. It was a supportive community of first-time readers and readers revisiting the text. The group began in January 2017 and the last meeting took place on June 8th, 2017. In 5 short months they successfully completed their study of Joyce’s Magnum Opus. Congratulations!
