Welcome to the New Irish Books Showcase! We are delighted to introduce you to some wonderful new Irish children’s books for ages 0 to 12+.
Join us for an evening of back-to-back presentations from the creatives behind some exciting new children’s books published in 2021. There will be a mix of books, from debut authors, to award-winning writers. Each author will have four minutes to tell you all about their book; the story, their publication journey, and maybe even show you some sneak peeks from between the covers!
While this event is primarily aimed at teachers, librarians and educators, we also invite parents, guardians, booksellers, aspiring writers/illustrators and all-round children’s books enthusiasts to attend this exciting event.
With presentations from:
• David McCullagh (The Great Irish Politics Book)
• Niamh Sharkey and Owen Churcher (A Field Guide to Leaflings)
• Flora Delargy (Rescuing Titanic)
• Ann Murtagh (The Kidds of Summerhill)
• Oisín McGann (A Short Hopeful Guide to Climate Change)
• Brian Gallagher (Winds of Change)
• Judi Curtin (Lily’s Dream)
• Jacqui Hurley (Girls Play Too: Book 2)
Chaired by Teacher and WonderFest Team Member, Conor Bredin
WonderFest would like to thank the authors and illustrators involved for volunteering their time to present their latest works for this event.
