A live, interactive event, delivered online 

Welcome to the New Irish Books Showcase! We are delighted to introduce you to some wonderful new Irish children’s books for readers aged 0 to 8+ years. 

Join us for an evening of back-to-back presentations from the creatives behind some wonderful children’s books published in 2021. There will be a mix of books, from debut authors, to renowned illustrators. Each author/illustrator will have four minutes to tell you all about their book; the story, their publication journey, and maybe even some sneak peeks inside the pages! 

We invite parents, guardians, teachers, librarians, booksellers, aspiring writers/illustrators and all-round children’s books enthusiasts to attend this exciting event. The books showcased are suitable for readers ages 0 to 8+ years old. 

With presentations from: 

• David King (A Hug for You)

• Brian Fitzgerald (I Don’t Want to Go to School)

• Tatyana Feeney (Gairdín Mháire na mBláth)

• Emer O’Neill (The Same But Different)

• Aoife Greenham (Big Dance)

• Paddy Donnelly (The Last Seaweed Pie, Here Be Dragons, The Vanishing Lake, and Hom)

• Gerry Daly (Puffling and the Egg)

• Nicola Colton (A Dublin Christmas)

• Julian Gough (Rabbit and Bear: A Bad King is a Sad Thing)

Chaired by Sarah Webb
