Join us for a special event with Irish author Nuala O’Connor!
In collaboration with the Mary L. Blood Memorial Library in Brownsville, Vermont, Nuala will speak with local author and publisher, Peter Money, about her new book, Nora: A Love Story of Nora and James Joyce. (This will be held at noon to accommodate the time difference.)
Nora immerses the reader in the life of the young woman who falls in love with James Joyce. Nora adores Jim and truly believes in his talent, but she longs for stability for herself and her young children while he galivants around Europe. An historical novel about love, heartache, ambition, and the life of an extraordinary woman.
Originally from Dublin, Nuala O’Connor has won the Short Story Prize in the UK and Ireland’s Francis MacManus Award. She is editor at flash e-zine Splonk. Her earlier books include Becoming Belle and Miss Emily, A Novel.
Peter Money’s latest book, Oh When The Saints, is about his time spent studying abroad in Dublin in the 1980s.

Acclaimed Irish novelist Nuala O’Connor’s bold reimagining of the life of James Joyce’s wife, muse, and the model for Molly Bloom in Ulysses is a “lively and loving paean to the indomitable Nora Barnacle” (Edna O’Brien).
