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.


Tuesday 5:30 – 7:00

This group has merged online with the Thursday reading group.

Thursday 4:30 – 6:00


The Thursday Ulysses reading group has gone online.

Finnegans Wake

Thursdays 7:00 – 8:30


Continuous Finnegans Wake
This reading group, which is now on its fourth round, is addictive.

Some of the members have been coming back for decades but they cannot get enough of the Wake.

Monday 3:00 – 4:30


Finnegans Wake
This reading group has moved online on Thursday.

The reading groups will take place online on Thursdays until further notice.
Please contact the Foundation for more information.
