Anne McMullan is an art tutor with DDLETB Adult Education Service, teaching out in the community with our community partners’ groups, who are lucky to have such a talented artist working with them and whose beautiful illustrations in the book ‘Trottie and the Farmyard Mystery’ by A. B. March brought the story of Trottie to life.
The book was recently launched in several libraries across the country and the next launch is on Thursday 7th November in Ballyroan Library at 3 pm. Bernice March has worked as a teacher for people with intellectual disabilities in Fingal for almost thirty years….she has also worked as a speech and language therapist and as a psychologist, so that she is well-placed in terms of understanding the role of storytelling in promoting childhood literacy and emotional well-being (Independent.ie. 2 Nov 2019). This book is the first in a trilogy and we wish Bernice and Anne the best of luck with this and future publications.
