World Book Day 2016

Welcome to World Book Day 2016! It's that time of year again....time to celebrate reading and all the wonderful books that make such a huge difference in the lives of children everywhere.
As I do every year at this time, I am hosting what I have come to call the World Book Day Extravaganza! With World Book Day on Thursday, 3rd March, all week long in the bookshop, I am bringing in numerous classes from the Galway area to meet authors and share an unbridled excitement of books. This year, I will have the incredible, wonderful talents of Nicola Pierce, Debbie Thomas, Patricia Forde and Andrew Lane coming in to talk to the kids about their books. It is fantastic! So pop by this blog each day...beginning today and have a look what's going on.
I can't forget to mention the specially published World Book Day books available from today, 29 February through the month of March. These are available for the cost of € 1.50 or FREE with one World Book Day book voucher! Ten books are published each year (11 in Ireland! Thank you, O'Brien Press!) in an effort to make sure that every child...yes, every child can have a book of their own choosing. And there is a great selection this year. Take a look!

So...gotta run! The children are coming!
