Don’t forget to pick up a copy of BookPage the next time you’re in the Library. BookPage contains short feature articles, author interviews and book reviews. Complimentary copies, funded by a grant from The Friends of the Library, are available in both Teen & Adult and Youth Services departments.
One of the books reviewed this month is The Most Dangerous Book: The Battle for James Joyce’s Ulysses by Kevin Birmingham. At the time of its writing, Ulysses rocked the literary world with its stream of consciousness narration, candid descriptions of sex, and explicit language. Today, as the 110th anniversary of Bloomsday (June 16, 1904) approaches, Birmingham’s account memorializes a milestone on road to intellectual freedom.
