This week, we visited the library in Charlestown for a reading by the Mayo author, Eilís Treacy. Eilís has written her first book called ‘Santa Writes Back’.
She spoke to us about how the book came about – the idea came to her last Christmas and it is when she started writing it. Betty Gannon is the illustrator of the book. Eilís showed us the original pictures for the book.
The book is made up of letters to boys and girls all around the world – children who have similar lives to us and others, in different situations to us.
The book is on sale in Spar Charlestown, at €8.99.
Santa also popped in to say hello!!
