Joseph Coelho 


Tuesday 14th July, 11am

Join the fabulous children’s author and poet, Joseph Coelho, for the launch of Library Adventures Live! Joseph will be reading from his awesome new book Zombierella: Fairy Tales Gone Bad and entertaining us with his performance poetry about animals, feelings, music, poems to join in with and poems to perform in special ways. He’ll be inviting children to get creative, in a session that will entertain and educate in equal measure.

Joseph Coelho is a performance poet, children’s author, playwright and winner of the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education Poetry Award 2015 for his debut poetry collection Werewolf Club Rules. Joseph creates dynamic poetry theatre pieces for young people that he tours nationally and has also been a guest poet on Cbeebies’ Rhyme Rocket.
