Courtesy of Kildare Library Service 1 Nore and Mrs Barrett have had two wonderful library outings.
This group were also lucky enough to do a question and answer session with award winning author Jane Mitchell in Naas Library on October 20th. She discussed her most recent novel A Dangerous Crossing. This is the story about a 13 year old Kurdish boy who has to flee his home in Syria.
The meet and greet experience opened up a whole new genre of books for the students. Many of the class said they would never have picked these types of book off the shelf if they saw them in a shop. Despite this, almost half of the class are going back to read Chalkline, also by Jane Mitchell. Chalkline is the story of a boy whose village is raided by Kashmiri Freedom Fighters who are looking for new recruits.
I can’t wait to read the Rudden inspired essays that arrive on my desk tomorrow….
