Wrexham’s libraries are currently celebrating Children’s Book Week. This is an annual celebration of reading for pleasure for children of primary school age that has been running for the past 80 years. During Children’s Book Week, schools, libraries and other venues in Wrexham and all over the UK hold events and activities aimed at encouraging children to enjoy reading for pleasure, explore libraries and bookshops, and even start writing themselves.
Poet Mandy Coe, author illustrator Rob Lewis, fantasy author David Whitley and author Jennie Dodd will all be visiting Wrexham’s libraries and schools during October. (These events are by invitation only.)
