Kingsmead Book Fair Session was packed to the gunnels.
With cushions for the little ones and standing room only at the back of the room, Polly Piralympics was a roaring success at Kingsmead Book Fair.
Polly was joined by two new pirates as well as the rest of her cousins: Toucane the Toucan, Hettie the Hornbill, Mpho the Macaw, and Guyrah the Pink Galah and Kilara the Cockatiel (who had both recently flown in from Australia).
Jann Weeratunga the author of the Polly’s Piralympics and Toucane Series’ chatted to her audience about being kind to new classmates and why it is ugly to bully people.
Not wanting to be left out Toucane popped in and chatted about not throwing rubbish/litter on the ground and sang a song with the audience about putting litter in the bin.
The Kingsmead Book Fair 25th May is nearly here! I must admit I’m starting to get a few butterflies, but I know that Polly and Toucane will be on the end or my arms, so I will be ok.
Here is my session on anti-bullying – how to make yourself less of a target and take the power away from the bully.
Session name: Polly’s Piralympic Series
Venue: Author Studio
Time: 10h15 – 10h45
I will also be launching Polly’s Rainy Day Piralympics, with lots of indoor activities to keep the pirates busy as they sail to Ireland. Meet the new crew, sailing in a submarine, discover a new game – Pollyopolly and watch out for those pesky leprechauns as they try to steal the Pirate’s GOLD.
Books will be sold there by Exclusive books, so get yours and then wander over to get it signed and have a pic with Polly.
Don’t forget Toucane’s books will also be available for younger readers.
After the event books may be purchased at Skoobs (Monte Casino), Fogarty’s in PE or Exclusive Books in Mall of the South. Or contact me directly email@example.com
My books are on their way from my printer Lee (BK Bookbindings.)
I can hardly believe all six Polly books are on their way up from Durban today. I’m counting down the days to the Kingsmead Book Fair, one of the biggest and most acclaimed book fairs in South Africa AND I’M GOING TO BE THERE!
Not only be there, but be presenting a workshop for 8-12’s on bullying and how to be less of a target for the bully. 10.15am See you there.
