To celebrate International Children's Books Day this April, IBBY Ireland have teamed up with various libraries around the country to bring young readers some exciting events around international books and the theme of fairy tales.
Tatyana Feeney was in Meath at the end of March and will be in Ballyroan Library, South County Dublin, tomorrow 8 April, running a Fairytale Monster Doodle. Come and draw an enormous castle and help fill it with monsters, fairies, princesses, dragons, or any other creatures you can imagine!
Debbie Thomas will run 'Nation Creation' workshops in Ballyroan Library on April 11 and Tallaght Library on April 27 and entice young writers to create their own countries, making up their own laws, deciding on their flags, customs and national treats!
Juliette Saumande will run a storytelling and writing workshop around Disaster David, her picturebook inspired by an Armenian folktale, in Ballyroan Library on April 12.
These events are free but some are school events while others are open to the public. Check out details with the venues.
