New Laureate na nÓg

Word is in from Dublin! Childrens' Books Ireland have announced the new  and fifth) Laureate na n'Óg (Childrens Laureate) for 2018-2020... and it's the incredible Sarah Crossan!!!
I am so thrilled to hear this news. Sarah is stepping to take over from the outgoing Laureate, PJ Lynch and was presented with this honour by Irelands President, Michael D. Higgins.
Her project will be called #WeAreThePoets and I'm certain it will be absolutely brilliant.
If you aren't familiar with Sarahs' books, you are in for a real treat. She writes verse novels that are moving and stunningly beautiful. From her first book,  The Weight of Water, Sarah has demonstrated a powerful, yet gentle writing that captures and encourages her audience. Never one to deal with easy subject matter, in her writing she takes incredibly difficult circumstances and makes them accessible and compelling with real passion and genuine voices. The Weight of Water, Apple and Rain, One,We Come Apart
