World Book Day 2014

In just about a week, the festivities for World Book Day 2014 will begin! This is my favourite time of year in the book shop, and I have a great line-up for the school children of Galway. Five days, five authors and brilliant fun!
On Monday the 3rd of March, Maria Burke will visit us. Maria is the author of The Ark of Dun Ruan series. Her second book in this fabulous fantasy series was released late last year.
On Tuesday the 4th, Sadie Cramer will bring her talents. She'll be talking about a story and there will be another wonderful activity in store.
Wednesday the 5th brings us the wonderful Patricia Forde, author of brilliant books both in English and in Irish!
Thursday the 6th of March is World Book Day itself. Paula Leyden will be visiting the bookshop to discuss all things 'The Butterfly Heart'; 'The Sleeping Baobab Tree' and Zambia!
Finally, on Friday the 7th of March, Nicola Pierce will arrive in Galway to present her new book, City of Fate. This is an exciting, evocative historical fiction based on events in the lives of young people during the siege of Stalingrad.
And... in between all of these wonderful visits, I will be reading to additional classes of a variety of ages. One of my favourite things to do in the entire world!
All the school classes invited are in for a treat!
Watch this space for photos and updates!
Here are the World Book Day 2014 books, with a very special WBD offering from O'Brien Press... Mary Arrigan's Milo and the Lost Lost Warriors!


  1. What An excellent line up for the week! Hope you, all the writers and the pupils of Galway have a great time. Hurray for World Book Day.
