"A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" by James Joyce

January 4 11:00–12:00 PM

The “Shakespeare and Company Project” conducts a discussion of Joyce's first novel as part of a series of explorations of titles frequently borrowed from Shakespeare and Company in Paris.

Shakespeare and Company, an English-language bookshop and lending library in Paris, was opened by American Sylvia Beach in 1919. The shop became the home away from home for a community of expatriate writers and artists now known as the Lost Generation. 

The book is freely accessible here

Presented in partnership with Princeton Public Library.

Made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
