The World Library and Information Congress (IFLA-WLIC) 2022 in Dublin, is an opportunity for librarians from many countries of the world to discover Ireland, Dublin, their culture and their literature.
In order to pay tribute to the importance of Irish literature in the world literature, IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group and the Library Association of Ireland organize a short flashmob where librarians are invited to read out an excerpt of James Joyce’s Ulysses in their own language. We will have paper sheets with the text of an except but bring your own copy if you can! (because books are beautiful)
Feel welcome to come and participate on Monday July 24th at 10:45 on Library Square!
The performance will include 3 times :
From 10:45 to 10:55, we will provide participants with instructions and with linguistic versions of an excerpt of Ulysses.
From 10:55 to 10:59, we will go to some corner of the square and wait until it’s 11:00.
From 11:00 to 11:05, participants will walk to the square and/or the lawn and read out an excerpt of Ulysses in English or in their own language while walking.
During that time, some designated members and some photographs or journalists may take pictures and film the reading.
