Joyce Readings at Sweny's Pharmacy

The intrepid volunteers and lovers of James Joyce who are keeping open the great Ulysses landmark, Sweny’s Pharmacy at 1 Lincoln Place in Dublin (pictured above), are embarking on an another Joycean odyssey. They will be reading Ulysses out loud there every week. At the moment they are not sure how long the marathon will last. “As long as it takes,” says Wendy Conroy of the newly founded Sweny’s Volunteers, adding that the Ulysses Reading Group will meet every Monday between 11.30am and 1pm until they have reached the very last line.

I've passed this place so many times and was baffled by the idea of a pharmacy selling only books. Mystery solved.
