Tipperary Libraries, with the help of the North Tipperary Arts Office, will be helping Children’s Books Festival 2013 to hoist the flag for children’s books this October by offering a programme of Irish authors and illustrators, designed to spark the imagination of young readers from toddlers to teens!

Activities will be running in libraries and schools throughout the month with everything from readings by popular authors, illustration workshops, plus storytelling, quizzes and competitions – there will be countless opportunities to explore a wide array of books!

An amazing selection of authors and illustrators will be visiting nine libraries in Tipperary including Marita Conlon-McKenna, Michael Smith, Oisin McGann and Alan Nolan. Schools will be invited to attend by their local library.

2013 will again see the return of the incredibly popular O’Brien Press Cover Design Competition which gives budding designers the opportunity to have their artwork featured on the cover of a professionally published book. To celebrate the sixth year of the O’Brien Press competition Wolfgran by Finbar O’Connor, first published in 2001, has been chosen for re-jacketing. The lucky winner will not only see their design gracing the shelves in their local library or bookshop, but will have their entire class invited to a glitzy awards ceremony.
