Eoin Colfer’s Visit

An exciting new novel

This morning we were absolutely delighted to welcome international bestselling children’s author and former Irish Children’s Laureate, Eoin Colfer to Westholme to talk to students from Years 5-9. Eoin was joined by author, Andrew Donkin and illustrator, Giovanni Rigano as they talked to students and celebrated the publication of their new graphic novel, ‘Illegal’.

Eoin Colfer is the writer of the bestselling, award-winning ‘Artemis Fowl’ series and has sold over 20 million books worldwide. The children had the opportunity to ask diverse and searching questions and the best questions won a sketch from illustrator Giovanni. Maia Lewis from 5W and Clarke Kobelt from 8S won the sketches and will be proudly displaying them in their classrooms. The children enjoyed meeting Eoin, Andrew and Giovanni as they had their books signed.
