Susan Steggall Visits Poole Central Library

Children in Poole Central Library had a real treat when children’s author and illustrator, Susan Steggall, visited recently. 

Susan’s book Busy Boats is based on Poole Harbour and her bright and colourful illustrations are a delight.

Susan talked about her books and demonstrated how she prepares her illustrations with collage and then the children created their own brilliant collages, which were framed and put on display in the Children’s Area. 

This free event was part of the UK-wide Family Arts Festival, which saw events running in all of the Poole libraries.

Councillor Judy Butt, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Public Engagement and Participation, with responsibility for libraries, Borough of Poole, said: "It is always so inspiring for children to meet the authors of the books they love and when they can learn about illustration as well it opens up all sorts of creative possibilities."
