Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

[FINISHED] 11am | From the Arctic to the 1913 Dublin Lockout: Bringing History Alive and Kicking with Judi Curtin, Nicola Pierce and Anna Carey

November 20, 2020 11:00 am
Cost: €15 per class
Until 12:00 pm

Note: This event is from a previous year.
Please visit this year’s festival programme for the latest 2021 events.

Join these three award-winning writers in conversation with writer, Sarah Webb, for a fascinating journey through history – from Arctic sailing adventures in search of the North-West Passage, to young servants’ lives in Lissadell House in the early 20th century, to tales of Dublin during the 1913 Lockout.

Passionate about history and its buried stories, Judi, Nicola and Anna will talk about their research, their books and their writing. Using lots of maps, photographs and illustrations from the past, they really will bring history alive and kicking for children. And they are looking forward to answering lots of the children’s questions too!

It’s a good idea to prepare questions before the event with your pupils.

A live, interactive event, delivered digitally via your own whiteboard.
