As part of the events of the ‘On Home Ground’ festival, some Year 9 and 10 English pupils had the honour of meeting the famous author of teenage books, Eoin Colfer.  Eoin Colfer is best known for being the author of the Artemis Fowl series.  The author currently holds the laureateship for Laureate na nÓg – a project established by the Arts Council which recognises the role and importance of literature for children.  Eoin Colfer regaled the group with stories from his childhood which influenced his writing as well as answering questions relating to his books and the writing process.  Books were available for purchase and Eoin Colfer readily obliged with book signings.
