We Love Books!

To celebrate World Book Day 2014, the boys from Ms. Lanigan’s 5th class attended the “We Love Books” event in the Source Theatre.  The workshop was organised by Children’s Books Ireland, and the Thurles event had two well-renowned authors at the event, namely Judi Curtin and Derek Landy.  Judi is the author of many books, centred on the lives of characters such as Eve and Alive.  Derek has won many awards, especially for his Skullduggery Pleasant series of books.  The show was certainly entertaining, and Derek proved a very manic and energetic character, compared to the more reserved Judi!  One thing that the boys did learn at the talk was the challenge of writing, and the sources of inspiration required.  We’re already looking forward to World Book Day 2015!
