Being a debut author has been crazily exciting so far, and now I have some incredible news to share… The Book of Learning is the chosen book for the 2016 Citywide Reading for Children campaign. The Citywide Read is run by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature and Dublin City Council’s Libraries Service, in partnership with Mercier Press and runs from January to March 2016.
So what does this mean? You can read the press release here, but In a nutshell, it’s a scheme that encourages children to read for fun. I’ll be facilitating events across Dublin City libraries throughout January, February and March 2016, and the children of Dublin, along with their parents, will be encouraged to read my book and to visit their local Dublin City library to enjoy the events taking place. It can be summed up as follows:
Children encouraged to read for fun + visit libraries = a very happy author!!!!
Planning starts now, and I cant wait to reveal more in the near future 🙂
