We had the pleasure of hosting Sarah Brennan, a committed children’s author with over a decade in the industry of writing and publication. Sarah has written 14 books with ‘Storm Whale’ this year being nominated for the Kate Greenaway medal, a very prestigious award from the UK. She is well known for her books series on the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac, weaving Chinese history into quirky storylines such as; The tales of Pin Yin Panda and this year’s animal, The tales of Desmond the Dog.
Workshops were held for children ranging from Kindergarten, Primary and many of the Year 7 pupils. In each of the workshops Sarah was able to share her stories and illustrations to the children. Our pupils were lucky enough to get their books signed and be inspired by Sarah’s work! Fingers crossed for Sarah, as she finds out this Thursday 15th if she made the shortlist for the award.
