Reading Together James Joyce’s "The Dubliners"

Reading Together James Joyce’s “The Dubliners” every Friday at 6 pm

Why read on your own, when we can read together? The stories and characters come to life through the voices of our readers. Dubliners by birth or by choice, but all reading James Joyce’s Dubliner’s, the book chosen would be the 2012 Dublin One City One Book: James Joyce’s Dubliners. It contains fifteen different short stories that we divided into seven reading marathons that have become nine radio programmes. We invited members of the public, community and voluntary organisations, to take part in the readings to celebrate Joyce as a storyteller and to entice readers and audiences to discover the most accessible writing of the celebrated Dublin novelist. Two of the stories (Ivy Day at the Committee Room and A Painful Case) became radio dramas thanks to the magic of the near drama group. Now, you can listen to all stories for the next nine weeks from Friday 21 June, at 6pm. And we will podcast them too, just in case you miss them on the day.
