On the 2nd of March, 2017, Patricia Forde came to talk to 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class on World Book Day.

She spoke to us about her career and her books. She told us all about her childhood and growing up in Galway and how she got her story ideas. Patricia started writing her first story based on a lie she told and continued from there.  She has written lots of books in both English and Irish. We were fortunate to hear her read us a section of “The Wordsmith”, one of her best selling novels. In addition to “The Wordsmith”, she has written lots of other titles including “Hedgehogs do not like heights” and “Frogs do not like dragons”.It was a very enjoyable morning and we have all been inspired to read and write more creative stories.

Thank you Patricia for visiting us all in Holmpatrick. 🙂
