Eoin Colfer Exhibition

Yesterday at the Arts Council, Eoin Colfer was announced by the Minister of State for the Department of Communications as the third Laureate na nÓg, Ireland's laureate for children's literature.  He follows Siobhán Parkinson and most recently Niamh Sharkey for a two-year tenure.

Born in Wexford in 1965, he is the author of the Artemis Fowl series and many other best sellers. Come see a display of his work extracted from the Library's junior collection - all hugely popular and most particularly so with readers aged approx. 10+
