Finnegans Wakeshop

Come join us at the James Joyce Centre for a unique experience at Finnegans Wakeshop.

Carol Wade of Art of the Wake and Des Gunning of Joyceborough will look back at ‘FW85,’ the 85th anniversary of the publication of Finnegans Wake, and a headsup on plans to mark ‘Mamalujo 101’ in 2025. Des Gunning has been running the Joyceborough Finnegans Wake Reading Group for fifteen years and Carol Wade has been illustrating the Wake for as long. This year, they and others combined forces for the first time to mark the occassion of FW85.

In Finnegans Wakeshop, they will reflect in that experience and look ahead to the coming 15 years, which will bring us to FW100. A copiously-illustrated with live performance of the text and plenty of audience participation. A short film, ‘On the Calends of Mars,’ will be screened.

The event is free but booking is essential. No previous Wake-reading experience required. Come enjoy this uniquely Joycean experience!
