The program for this year's James Joyce Birthday Celebration includes a talk by Irish scholar Kevin O'Halloran entitled "Charles Stewart Parnell: A Joycean Hero."

The celebration takes place Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2011, at the Historical Society of Sarasota, at Crocker Memorial Church, 1260 12th Street, between N. Tamiami Trail and Cocoanut Avenue.

Following the program, stay for refreshments and Joyce's 129th Birthday Cake. The celebration is an annual event presented by The James Joyce Society of Sarasota.
