Ennis Book Club Festival will build on the success of the TY Book Club project of 2020 and host a series of workshops for TY Classes in County Clare in 2021. The workshops will be hosted by Sarah Moore Fitzgerald, professor and award winning teacher at the University of Limerick. A lot of her work and research has focused on how education can be enhanced for creative engagement and motivation among learners. She has written several bestselling novels for children and young adults, including the award shortlisted 'Back to Blackbrick,' exploring Young Adult Fiction, its themes and characters.
Four schools will take part in the project with three workshops held with each school. The workshops will explore Young Adult fiction, its themes and characters.
The facilitator and students will open the first workshop by exchanging and sharing ideas about character and story arcs leading into a more detailed focus on the chosen books - themes and plots with discussion and interaction in subsequent workshops.
