Happy Birthday Charles Dickens!
This year marks the 200th birthday of one of the most famous writers of all times - Charles Dickens. Dickens was an ordinary person who wrote extraordinary stories. No one tells a ghost story quite like Dickens. Even though he lived in the 1800s we still love his books today. Many of his novels are for adults but some appeal to kids too. In Kids' World we have shortened versions of his works. We also have fascinating biographies of his life. Some of the books we have feature him as a character in the story. Here's a list of books written by him and about him - but there are more. Have you ever thought about becoming a writer yourself? You may want to come to our workshops for kids held at the library. They're called Kids' Ink. Please check the newsletter for future dates.
