Wexford Book Tour – Day Two!
The traffic on Wexford’s quay was jammers, but thankfully I made it through the library doors with 10 minutes to spare.
For this first author visit on Day Two there were over 100 pupils from three different schools – thanks so, so much for coming, everyone. Also a huge thank-you to Vanessa of Wexford library for organising for everyone to get a lovely A4 illustration of their choice from the seven full-page cartoons in my magic history tale for boys and girls aged eight to 12.
The fifth and final Co Wexford author visit was to the fabulous library in Gorey, a bright, colourful, modern space that was a joy to visit. It was a smaller group than in Wexford town, but nonetheless perfectly formed!
Thank you, everyone. It was a real pleasure to visit the libraries of Co Wexford, and to meet so many bright and enthusiastic pupils – an experience I’ll never forget… for all the right reasons.
