This project started in back at the beginning of 2017 after a conversation with Eva O’Donovan from the Friends of Meltham Library. I am always keen to get children interested in writing and I needed somewhere that was willing to provide a place for me to do it.
The Carlile Institute, Meltham was also having a renaissance at the time and was reinventing itself into a community hub and the new location for Meltham library.
So, we thought, what a great opportunity to get the local children interested in visiting their new library and maybe creating something special along the way.
We didn’t know what response we were going to have, but we kept our fingers crossed and then September came around…

Villi Asgeirsson was born in Iceland as Major Tom ascended to the skies, to be lost forever. He spent the seventies learning to read and write. He also moved houses a lot, having lived in at least six places by the time he was ten.
On his tenth birthday, he received a small transistor radio and was scared witless by a huge spider sitting on his chest. This may have formed him in a small way, or it may be irrelevant. Such is the nature of our human existence. There are no absolutes and we may never know what matters until much later, if at all.
The eighties were spent listening to questionable music and dressing badly. He also tried to learn the guitar, but the dang things never stayed in tune so he gave up.

Lauren Courcelle has lived in Vermont all of her life, but if she told you how many years she's been a Vermonter, you'd know how old she is, so don't expect her to admit that! At a young age, she decided she wanted to be a teacher when she grew up. In hindsight, much of her decision was initially based on her tremendous excitement at the idea of being able to write on the chalkboard whenever she wanted! As she matured, or maybe due to the inclusion of many more white boards in classrooms, Lauren realized that the best part about teaching was being able to have a daily impact on students, particularly when inspiring them to become lifelong lovers of literature.
