World Book Day Extravaganza 2016
I thought it might be interesting to let you know which of the World Book Day Books was most popular among the young and voracious readers of Galway.

And don't forget to use those vouchers! Use them to acquire one of the incredible 10 (11 in Ireland) specially published World Book Day Books or to get €1.50 off the book of your choice. And remember to use them before 27 March 2016. Your favourite booksellers can't accept them after that date! Don't miss out.
Now... are you ready? The total attendance for the World Book Day Extravaganza 2016 has been....(drum roll, please)... 589 school children!!!
My most heart-felt thanks to the wonderful, kind authors who donated their time and energy to help me carry on bringing this magic to Galway. I cannot thank you enough. You were all amazing!
Thanks to Nicola Pierce (Behind the Walls)
Debbie Thomas (Class Act)
Patricia Forde (The Wordsmith)
and Andrew Lane, who gets an extra thank you for stepping in at the last minute and coming all the way from his home in England to solve a problem for me!
And my continued thanks to the staff of Dubray Books for putting up with me year after year, and the teachers and schools of Galway. YOU make this possible!
