Live event - don't miss it!

Meet BOOT, in this very special, one-off live event.  He's a small robot who embarks on a big adventure to find the little girl who may have lost, or, worse, discarded him.  Join Shane Hegarty (BOOT, Darkmouth series) for a special interactive event, where you can meet BOOT and his friends, brainstorm some ideas for robots of your own, and find out about the next instalment of BOOT's adventures.

Shane Hegarty is one of Ireland’s most popular writers of children’s fiction, creator of the best-selling Darkmouth fantasy series, which began in 2015 and has four volumes so far: The Legends BeginWorlds ExplodeChaos Descends and Hero Rising. To date, Hegarty’s work has been shortlisted for an Irish Book Award and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2016. Darkmouth is currently being adapted into a big screen animated film by Oscar-nominated director Douglas Sweetland and Moana Head of Story, Dave Pimentel. Before a fierce bidding war at Bologna Book Fair 2013 launched him on this path, Hegarty had been arts editor of The Irish Times, and before that, he worked in radio and the music business.

This event will not be available for replay afterwards.
