What do Ayn Rand and James Joyce Have in Common?

Both authors were born on this day! James Joyce in 1882. Ayn Rand in 1905. Stop by the library and check out some of the well-known works by these authors. Also, for more information on James Joyce, visit the James Joyce Centre. For more information on Ayn Rand, visit the Ayn Rand Institute. I have read several works by each author and recommend Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by Joyce and Anthem or The Fountainhead by Rand.
