A conversation about the book Ulysses on the 100th anniversary of its publication.

One hundred years after the first publication of  Ulysses by James Joyce, "Ulysses: A Reader's Odyssey" explores one of the twentieth century's most significant works of fiction. In this book, Ambassador Daniel Mulhall leads the reader through the eighteen chapters of Joyce's novel using the famous structuring principle of Homer's Odyssey. Mulhall aims to release "Ulysses" from its reputation of impenetrability and show the reader the pleasure it offers.

Ambassador Mulhall will join DC Public Library Executive Director Richard Reyes-Gavilan on February 2 to discuss "Ulysses: A Reader's Odyssey." Joyce's "Ulysses" has been a personal favorite of Reyes-Gavilan for three decades. The conversation will focus on how Ambassador Mulhall's book offers people a guide to make "Ulysses" less intimidating.

Daniel Mulhall is Ireland's 18th Ambassador to the United States. He maintains a keen interest in Irish history and literature. He is the author of "A New Day Dawning: A Portrait of Ireland in 1900" and co-editor of "The Shaping of Modern Ireland: A Centenary Assessment" and has made numerous contributions to books, newspapers and journals published in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Britain.

The discussion will stream live on the Library's Youtube page. Following the stream, the program will be available on demand.
