With Meath Library Month on this month, two authors visited Slane library this week. Due to number restrictions, a hotly contested draw took place in the staff room to see which classes could attend. Fourth and sixth classes were the chosen two to visit Nicola Pierce on Wednesday. Nicola has written a number of books based on historical events in Ireland such as the 1916 Rising, The Titanic and The Siege of Derry. Kyle Callan was especially enthusiastic as he has a number of her books and brought them to be signed on the day.
Pauline Burgess was the second author who hosted Ms. Duignan’s second class. She read from her book and then spoke to the children about their own writing and favourite stories. Many thanks to Slane Library, the authors and class teachers for helping the events run so smoothly.
