World Book Day Extravaganza - Day 3

Patricia Forde reading from Frogs Do Not Like Dragons
Well, we're over half way through the World Book Day Extravaganza at Dubray Books Galway branch, and again, it was quite a day. I personally read to 3 class groups today, which I absolutely loved. I hope they all enjoyed it as much as I did!
But the big news is that we wound up the day with a visit from one of our favourite people in the world, Patricia Forde. Trish entertained and enlightened a group from her old school, Scoil an Linbh Iosa...Mercy Primary School. She talked about how she decided to become a writer, what it takes to actually be a writer; she had the children tell some of their 'great escape artist' stories and read to them from one of her best books, Frogs Do Not Like Dragons. Thank you sooooo mmmmuuuch, Trish! As always, you were great.
Relating a very dramatic incident that lead to her career

A very captive audience!
