WAKE WATCHERS READING GROUP
announces A DATE TO REMEMBER
November 4, 2019
5:30-7:30 pm

when we have our
FIRST OPEN PUBLIC MEETING in many years at

Shakespeare & Co. Booksellers
939 Lexington Avenue
(between 68th and 69th Streets)
New York, NY 10065

All Wake readers are invited to join us
in our continuing conversation about the Wake.
Discussion leader Kevin Gilroy says:
We are starting on page 474, line 1,
"Lowly, longly, a wail went forth."
It's the start of the longest chapter (Book III,
) and by many accounts the most phantasmagorical.
It is the third watch of Shaun, now Yawn,
who is the subject of a Starchamber Quiry by the four gossipelers.
It ends with the famous "Haveth Childers Everwhere,"
HCE's self-defense as a great city builder.
It's a great place to get back into the book
for those who haven't been around for a while.

PLEASE NOTE
Shakespeare & Co. has a cafe where drinks and snacks
can be purchased and consumed during the meeting.
YOU ARE ASKED not to bring outside food and drink into the store.
AND FEEL FREE TO BUY A BOOK OR TWO to support our new host.
ALL ARE WELCOME! VETERAN READERS AND NEWCOMERS ALIKE
