The Children’s Book Festival kicks off next month across the library network with 89 events to cater for all interests and age groups. – We’re looking forward to the penalty shoot-outs with soccer fanatic Tom Palmer, and Tarzan will be swinging from the rafters in Solstice promoting the revamped series by Andy Briggs.

We have plenty of home-grown talent too with return appearances from the much-loved Judi Curtin, Sarah Webb and Oisin McGann.

New to the festival programme are first-time children’s authors Nicola Pierce, Chris Judge and Debbie Thomas.

For the comic books fans we have some interesting comic book workshops running in a number of our libraries.

Finally we have storytellers, drama workshops, poetry writing and Canadian dance and music to wrap it all up. Enjoy!

All events are FREE.

Bookings via your local library.

Bookings are for schools only.
