Author Paul Cookson at BFIS

Friday, February 2, 2018

Thank you so much to everyone who helped to make our author visit with Paul Cookson such a great success!  Paul really showed us the power of poetry.  His performances of his poems, like The King of All the Dinosaurs and Mr. Shadow’s Shoes were mesmerizing.  Everyone in the audience was listening and participating without exception.  His funny and charming way with all the students was a delight to watch! As well as being superbly entertained by Paul and his wonderfully comical poetry,

He is one of the UK’s most popular and successful performance poets and is no stranger to Spain, having visited schools in Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Castellon and Alicante. We were  looking at his work here in the library before his visit. His books were on sale after each session. 

We sold an incredible 168 poetry books!

This would not have been possible without the generosity of parents and students.  A big thank you also to the parent volunteers who did an outstanding job of helping students find just the right poetry book.  It is a wonderful achievement and my gratitude goes out to all those who made it possible.  Your help and support is always very much appreciated.
 If you did not get a chance to buy one of his books, please come and check out his books in the ES Library.

Watch Paul in action, check out one of his performances.

Thank you!
