The Book of Learning House!

BDOOn Sunday, March 20th, my 2016 UNESCO Citywide Read events came to a close with 23 Mercury Lane from The Book of Learning recreated in real life! The wonderful St Patrick’s Festival team used the iconic RSAI building on Merrion Square as the setting and brought together a variety of people (and critters) to make the house in my book come to life. As well as my own readings, there was an actor, a magician, art and writing workshops, and real petting rats.

This was truly a one of a kind opportunity for me, as well as my readers, and it was great to see so many people turn up to share the experience. At times, there were queues down the street to get in! I was delighted to see some familiar faces, as well meet new readers, and I even got a few surprise gifts. So a huge thank you to everyone involved and everyone who came to enjoy the fun. Here are a few of my favourite photos from the day…
