ZÜRICH James Joyce Foundation

Reading Groups

The Zürich James Joyce Foundation has been conducting weekly reading groups of Ulysses and Finnegans Wake for years. The aim is a thorough but leisurely and relaxed ramble through the works, step by step, with comments and discussion. It should bring out the vitality and humor of what so many potential readers shy away from but others become addicted to.


All groups can be joined at any time. Newcomers are always welcome.


The new Ulysses reading group with Fritz Senn will begin on 

Thursday, October 27 2022, 4:30 p.m. 

We meet on site, at the Foundation here in Zurich (unless federal regulations will not allow this, so that we would have to move back online).

Since we can only accommodate a limited number of participants at Augustinergasse, it is: first come, first served.

Please sign up by emailing at info@joycefoundation.ch.

Finnegans Wake

Please note that as of 11 October 2022, we will have two separate groups: the zoomers and those moving back on site at

Augustinergasse 9. 

Tuesdays 7:00 – 8:30

The zoom group will meet on Tuesdays, 7-8.30 p.m.

We send you the zoom link every Tuesday morning. 

Thursdays 7:00 – 8:30

The Wake group at the Foundation will continue to meet on Thursdays, 7-8.30 p.m. at the Augustinergasse.
