    See All Times
    Heralded as the greatest novel of the 20th century, Ulysses is also considered one of the most daunting. The Rosenbach’s Reading Group offers a welcoming discussion-based environment designed to unlock its complexities and offer insight into Joyce’s genius. Providing a supportive community for first-time readers and enriching the experience of readers revisiting the text, this course incorporates an episode-by-episode discussion led by instructor Ted Howell. Throughout the course, participants will also explore primary resource materials from the Rosenbach’s James Joyce collection, including the Ulysses manuscript, to enhance their understanding and deepen their relationship with both the text and the author himself.

    This group meets about once a month on Wednesday evenings. Please see the web page for a detailed calendar, or call 215-732-1600 x100 for more information.
    The Rosenbach is wheelchair accessible at the south entrance.
