World Book Day Extravaganza 2016 - Day 2

The World Book Day Extravaganza is rolling right along! This was Day 2, and we opened the festivities with me(!) reading to two wonderful local class groups who were enthusiastic and excited about hearing from such stories as David Baddiels' The Parent Agency, The Beginner's Guide to Bear Spotting by Michelle Robinson and David Roberts and, my old favourite, Where The Wild Things Are.
But the big event of the day was the amazing Debbie Thomas who made her way to Galway to talk to classes from Scoil Iognaid and Scoil an Linbh Iosa about creating stories (everywhere you go!), reading, how to be a writer and her last book, Class Act.
Today, we hosted a total of 101 area school children; making our new total 216! And there's more to come!
Here's a bit of photographic evidence:
