Laureate Luncheon

Last week the new Children's Laureate Siobhán Parkinson invited us illustrators and authors to Airfied for a yummy lunch.

In case you have not heard Siobhán is the first Laureate na nÓg an exciting new project recognising the role and importance of literature for children. Siobhán is passionate about books has always been an champion of the cause of children’s literature. She has lots of ideas going forward for the new two years especially concerning the role of libraries in our schools.

What better way to spend an afternoon, discussing books with fellow authors Marie Louise Fitzpatrick, Michael Emberely, Oisin McGann, Sarah Webb, Jane Mitchell, Marita Conlon-McKenna Aubrey Flegg and hosted by the fantastic Mags Walsh of CBI.
