Sophia’s off to Ireland in October, to talk about writing. The tour is called Your Wildest Dreams. What’s my wildest dream? HEL-LO? To meet Vivienne Westwood, talk to her about fashion, organise a catwalk show, see Crow’s clothes worn on the high street by loads of girls and make sure they’re made in a way we can be proud of. I seem to remember telling you all about this somewhere.
But we’re not talking about me. We’re talking about the girls and boys in Ireland. The ones Sophia will be meeting. Here’s some more info for them.
What’s your wildest dream? To be an actor? A professional dancer? To win the X Factor? Or maybe even be a writer?
Sophia Bennett, Judi Curtin and Sarah Webb all dreamed of one day becoming writers. Discover how all their dreams came true and more on this very special tour of Limerick, Cork and Dublin as part of the 2010 Children’s Book Festival.
