JUNE 16TH: A LONDON BLOOMSDAY WALK (KENSINGTON HIGH STREET) - NIALL MCDEVITT LONDON POETRY WALKS

Irish poet Niall McDevitt ‘proves by algebra’ that you don’t need to be in Dublin to do a Bloomsday walk.

Telling the story of James Joyce’s belated marriage to Nora Barnacle in 1931 at Kensington Registry Office, as well as Joyce’s friendships with fellow modernists Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, Ford Madox Ford and Wyndham Lewis, McDevitt illuminates Joyce studies in a unique way, celebrating a great book and a great relationship.

Meeting Sat June 16 at Kensington High Street by the entrance to the tube station. 2pm. £10. Please click here to purchase tickets. (For more info call 07722163823, or email newriver@thenewriverpress.com)
