Hopscotch in the Sky with Lucinda Jacob & Lauren O’Neill

Presented by Dublin Book Festival in association with Poetry Ireland and Little Island Books. 

Join poet Lucinda Jacob and illustrator Lauren O’Neill as they take you on a magical journey in poems and pictures through the seasons of the year, with their new book Hopscotch in the Sky (Little Island Books and Poetry Ireland). Lucinda will describe how ideas for her poetry come from the world around her – from Dublin streets to Dún Laoghaire pier, and show young poets how to find their own inspiration and compose their own lines. Lauren will talk about how she transformed the words of Lucinda’s poems into beautiful artwork, and help young artists find their own inspiration in the written word.
