Popular children’s authors are visiting libraries in Denbighshire to meet their young readers, as part of the annual Children’s Book Week celebrations.
This year the visiting authors are Helena Pielichaty, Nicola Davies, Guy Bass, and Tracey Corderoy.
Bethan Hughes of Denbighshire Libraries said: “Giving children the opportunity to meet an author is a very effective way of encouraging children to read more books and to visit the library regularly. The experience stays with them for a long time. They get a chance to ask the author questions about their books and about what it’s like to be a professional author.
“Children’s Book Week is a focal point of our work with schools to promote reading for pleasure and develop children’s literacy skills, and we are delighted that we have been able to attract such fantastic authors to Denbighshire.”
The week is organised by Denbighshire Libraries and supported by Literature Wales.
Helena Pielichaty will will be at Llangollen Library on Tuesday, October 2.
From 9-10.15am she will meet Ysgol Bryn Collen Year 4-5 (including the Chatterbooks groups) and from 10.45-11.45 it will be Ysgol Gwernant Year 5-6.
