Back of the net: library scores again

A session – or game – of two halves with football fanatic and children’s author Tom Palmer at the Henry Bloom Noble Library mixed elements of the ‘Beautiful Game’ with reading to striking effect.

The session kicked off with a football quiz where the children tackled questions from newspapers, magazines and books posed by the writer who confessed to discovering the world of words and books only slowly, with a little help from his mother.

Borough librarian Jan Macartney also pitched in as children took penalties against her and before the full-time whistle blew there were book signing and question and answer sessions.
