Most classes will take place on Mondays from 12-2:30 pm.  Attendees are welcome to bring their lunch to class.

Since his retirement from the publishing business in 1994, Jesse has been immersed in Joyce.  He has studied his life, his work and his creative process at New York University, The New School, the 92nd Street "Y", the Zurich James Joyce workshop and elsewhere.  He has taken undergraduate, graduate, continuing education and private classes on Joyce, The Odyssey, Dante and other Joycean related fields of study.  Jesse is also involved with Joyce as a collector of interpretive studies, translations and related mateirals.  There are some 400 Joycean related volumes in his collection.

Jesse has taught classes on Joyce's work at New York University's School of Professional Studies, the Irish Consulate, Barnes & Noble and numerous other locales.  He has lectured on Ulysses in New York, Connecticut, Texas, and Florida, as well as abroad in Switzerland, France and Italy.

Summer Reading Kick-Off: 'Space! The Cosmos for Kids' with Turtle Dance Music

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Cos Cob Library
Community Room
Space! The Cosmos For Kids is a fun techno-space-dance-party for kids and families. Each song includes dancing, music technology, and information about our solar system to a thumping beat. Audience members will meet aliens from outer space, travel through black holes, discover the different characteristics of the eight planets, sing karaoke, participate in a rap battle about the sun and learn about the differences between revolution and rotation. Each song is accompanied by hands-on, visual, and sensory experiences designed to help kids learn and have fun at the same time.

Turtle Dance Music is a children's music company dedicated to furthering child development through arts-integration, music, and educational entertainment. They spark children's curiosity and imaginations through interactive, inclusive musical performances that use a wide range of instruments, comedy and music technology. 

Turtle Dance Music's mission is to further early childhood development as well as autism intervention through incredible, affordable and fun sensory-friendly shows and assemblies. Our goal is to engage children with important social, emotional and educational topics. We believe that education happens both in and out of the classroom. Every child, regardless of developmental ability or socioeconomic status, should have a right to learn and grow to their fullest potential. Arts-integration in education is a vital tool for expanding young minds and building new, exciting connections between children and the world around them.
