Juliette Saumande a French writer of Armenian descent living in Dublin has been working on a children’s adaptation of an episode of the saga of David of Sassoon. The picturebook was published this winter in English and also in Armenian by Zangak Publishing under the title Disaster David.
Ms. Saumande will be running a free writing and illustration workshop for children around this book in Ballyroan Library (South County Dublin) on Wednesday 12 April from 11am to 12 noon.
Everyone is welcome!
Meet Disaster David, a young giant with a big heart and big clumsy hands. He is forever breaking things, but he never means to: he is just too strong, too… giant! In this fun and lively workshop you will discover the adventures and misadventures of this folktale hero from Armenia and create your very own GIANT story in words and pictures. (Suitable for ages 5-8)
