Ireland recently named Eoin Colfer the third Laureate na nÓg, the Irish Laureate for children’s books.
“I feel I am representing my family and my county and indeed all book people in Ireland, which is not something I mean to take lightly. I intend to spend my time spreading stories to every nook and cranny in the country,” said Colfer.
Colfer is a New York Times bestselling author most well-known for his Artemis Fowl series. His most recent book, Warp the Assassin, has been nominated for the CBI Book of the Year 2014. For more, visit his website.
