Weather Stations: Oisin McGann's Storytelling for Kids

Listen to Weather Stations: Oisin McGann's Storytelling for Kids

Oisín McGann is an Irish author and illustrator who has written and illustrated a huge range of novels and picture books for young adults and children, including the Mad Grandad series and several fantasy and sci-fi adventures.

Oisín is renowned for his storytelling workshops. In this special Saturday afternoon event for kids aged 8 to 12, he will explain how he created several of his well-loved books. Covering the gathering of ideas, bringing the story together, and how to use language in a clever and funny way, this is the ideal one-stop shop for anyone bursting with stories of their own to tell. Plus, you get to hear Oisín reading from one of his books and watch him draw, then ask all the questions you like.

Oisín is also the Weather Stations writer in residence at Tallaght Community Arts in Dublin, a global initiative that places literature and storytelling at the heart of the conversations around climate change.
