Get to know James Joyce this Christmas at Bunclody Library!
Bunclody is in Co Wexford.
This Christmas at Bunclody Library we are inviting you to read one of Joyce’s short stories “The Dead”. This short story was first published in 1907 and tells the story of a married couple who attend an annual Christmas-season party at the home of two elderly aunts, an evening which ends in an epiphany for the married couple.
On Thursday the 15th of December at 7pm, we will be showing the acclaimed film adaption of Joyce’s short story. This film directed in 1987 by John Houston and starring his daughter Angelica and Donal McGann was nominated for an Academy Award (for Writing Adapted Screenplay) so it will be a treat for all Joyce fans.
The following week on Thursday the 22nd of December, multi award winning acclaimed author Claire Keegan will lead a discussion on both Joyce’s text and Houston’s film adaption. Come along and share your views on the text, the film and Joyce in general! Join us for this wonderful two part opportunity to experience the work of James Joyce as you may never have before.
