Last week I attended the Children’s Books Ireland Awards ceremony where the Shadowing video featuring our Book Club was shown for the first time! I was so proud to see them up on the big screen and all of the authors were raving about how great they were afterwards! You can see the video below.
Marie Bishop B5 and I were judges for this years awards and it was such a wonderful experience to be there yesterday as the winners were announced.
