Tuesday, 19 November 2019
5.30 - 7.00 p.m.

at the Zurich James Joyce Foundation, Augustinergasse 9, 8001 Zurich (2nd floor)

Please join us, everyone is welcome. You need no preparation, no special skills, just a basic knowledge of English and enough curiosity to want to give the novel a try. If you can, please bring your own copy of the book.

To give us a sense of how many participants to expect, please get in touch if you'd like to join the group, whether permanently or just tentatively.

Email: info@joycefoundation.ch
Phone: 044 211 83 01

Note that the Foundation has a second (independent) Ulysses reading group on Thursday 4.30 - 6.00 p.m., which is also starting a new round of the book on 24 October 2019.

Tuesday, 18 June 2019, Penelope, Episode 18 (end of book)


The last reading reached the end of the book.

Please note: A new round will begin in a little while. We will post an announcement here as soon as possible.

You may also be interested in the Thursday Ulysses reading group (4.30 – 6 p.m.), which has also just reached the end of the book and will restart it in autumn 2019 (probably in September). Their blog-page (or “online bookmark”) can be found by clicking on Thursday U blog.

If you wish to engage in an alternative group-reading activity while you're waiting for Ulysses to restart, why not graduate temporarily or permanently to one of the Foundation's Finnegans Wake groups, either on Mondays (3 – 4.30 p.m.) or on Thursdays (7 – 8.30 p.m.)?

The groups' “online bookmarks” can be found by clicking on Monday FW blog and on Thursday FW blog.

You can also check the Zurich James Joyce Foundation website for further information.
