Celebrating World Book Day at Dubray Books, Galway... the final day

Today was the final day of our World Book Day 2011 extravaganza in the shop, and today we played host to 126 school children attending the 4 event sessions of the day. The 5th and 6th classes from Claddagh National School were treated to events featuring the absolutely marvellous Sarah Webb (again), who talked about her life, becoming a writer, 'Amy Green' and various other important bits and pieces that the classes found both hugely informative and entertaining. Thanks, Sarah. You are indeed a star!
And as if that weren't enough... last but certainly not least by a long shot.... the two 5th classes from Scoil Iognaid were completely mesmerised by the wonderful, wonderful Deirdre Sullivan. Deirdre gave them the inside story on writing and publishing her first (very successful) book, Prim Improper; what is coming up next and her pet guinea pigs! And a big thanks to you, Deirdre. They all loved it... as did we, at Dubray Books.
