On Wednesday 1st October, 5th Class went to Trim Library to meet Irish author, Nicola Pierce as part of the Children’s Book Festival. Nicola has written two children’s books – The Spirit of the Titanic and City of Fate. Nicola’s third children’s book, Behind the Walls, is due to be released in March 2015. Nicola talked to us about City of Fate. She showed us lots of pictures associated with the story. City of Fate is about the German invasion of Stalingrad one Sunday afternoon in 1942. We learned a lot from what Nicola told us. It was great fun and we really enjoyed it.
