Following on from the success of their first ever Book Club the Consulate General of Ireland, Vancouver is delighted to announce their next Book Club selection is Nora: A Love Story of Nora and James Joyce by Nuala O’Connor.
James Joyce is one of Ireland’s famous writers, whose literary masterpiece Ulysses follows the events of one single day in Dublin (the 16th of June 1904) and what happens to the characters Stephen Dedalus, Leopold Bloom, and his wife Molly. Every June, Bloomsday is celebrated by J admirers of literature across the globe with readings, performances, re-enactments, and a host of other festivities – like book clubs reading related novels!
