*This post is dated October 27th, 2011* For the Children’s Book Festival I met school groups in libraries around Co. Meath. A thing I love about meeting young readers is the surprising angles they take on my work. Often a boy or girl will have paid extraordinarily close attention to a minor character or a fleeting detail.
There’s currently lots of fun stuff to read online about some of the various projects CBI is involved with. Why not grab a cup of tea and jump in?
The Dublin Book Festival’s children’s programme will run from 15 – 16 November 2014 in and around Smock Alley Theatre, Temple Bar, The Gutter Bookshop and The Fighting Words Centre. The Dublin Book Festival has something for everyone and all events are free, making for a fun, affordable day out for all age groups.
Don’t forget to enter CBI’s competitions are closing soon! The Stories are for Everyone poster competition and The O’Brien Press Design a Cover competition and nearly finished, don’t forget to get your entries in the post!
This year, wherever you are in Ireland, events and activities will be taking place to encourage children to enjoy the experience and the magic of reading!
