Virtual Book Clinic


This event is Sold Out.

Hawk's Well Theatre is partnering with Children's Books Ireland to celebrate World Book Day!

Are you a young reader? Looking for a new series to delve into? Feeling uninspired by your bookshelves at home? Do you need a prescription for an exciting new read? Then pop into the virtual Book Clinic! Visit the Book Doctor and consult on your favourite reads – come away with a prescription for your next book which you can order from your local bookshop or library!

Children’s Books Ireland Book Clinics are pop-up events for providing guidance about books to children and their families. Usually Children’s Books Ireland partners with festival and venues, presenting children’s book experts as Book Doctors with lab coats, prescription pads and an official stamp. Based on an informal chat with children or parents who need guidance, they recommend excellent books, using their Recommended Reads guide to the best books of the year as a tool which can be given to families for their own reference. However, given the unusual times we find ourselves in, Children’s Books Ireland are presenting Book Clinics online.

These clinics will be presented on ZOOM, will be 15 minutes in duration and are suitable for children 0-18 years (though for babes-in-arms the advice will be directed toward parents.)  Places are limited, and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Booking essential.

If you have more than one young reader who would like to meet the Book Doctor please book one 15 minute consultation per child. By booking a ticket you will receive one 15 minute consultation for one child and we will confirm the start time of your consultation. A parent or guardian will be required to be in the same room as the child during the Zoom call. Each patient’s book prescription will be issued by email after the call has ended.
