On Tuesday, December 4th, 2012, in Ennis, County Clare, Trish talks to teachers about the Write A Book project in primary schools. It’s a great project as it encourages even the youngest children to enjoy the pleasure of writing their very own book.

On December 7th, Trish reads as part of a Pop-Up shop in the Galway City Museum. This event is organised by Foras Na Gaeilge and the Arts Council to promote Irish literature in the weeks leading up to Christmas. All are welcome and the event is free.

At 11 a.m. on December 11th, Trish’s new picture book “Mise Agus An Dragún”, illustrated by Steve Simpson and published by Futa Fata, launches in An Taibhdhearc in Galway .
