On the 8th of October the pupils in 6th Class visited Trim Library to meet Cathy Cassidy at the launch of her latest book, Sami’s Silver Lining. A photographer was at hand to take a photo of the class with the author. Cathy told us all about Sami and the other characters. She explained how the war in Syria and the resulting refugee crisis inspired her to write the story. We listened to Cathy as she read aloud a chapter from the book. Before we left the library, Cathy gave us some bookmarks, pencils and stickers with her signature. We had a great trip!
