Joseph Coelho

5 Feb 2019

Join children's author and poet Joseph Coelho as he delves into two of his picture books… Luna Loves Library Day about a young girl's joy in choosing books in her local library with her loving father, but things tend to escape from each book they read. See if you can spot the bugs, the magic and the dinosaurs that escape from the books.

Joseph will also read from IF ALL THE WORLD WERE… a story that centres around a young girls love for her grandfather, who always had stories to tell. Joseph will share his inspirations for the story and help you create a new poem showing how writing and drawing are wonderful ways to explore feelings and record memories. A thought-provoking and uplifting event which explores the concept of death and loss in a touching, tender and accessible way.
