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.
