Dun Laoghaire’s Lexicon Library was a hive of activity for the launch of
Sarah Webb’s wonderful new book ‘ Be Inspired.’
The book is a celebration of 28 talented and bright Irish young people who are changing the world. Many have already made their mark on life.
Sarah wrote and researched the book over the Covid lockdown and it is illustrated by Graham Corcoran.
Ivan O’Brien from publishers O’Brien Press launched the book and many of the O’ Brien team were there. This very special launch was tinged with a little sadness as Michael O’Brien and Sarah’s wonderful Mum Melissa had both passed away recently.
Young bee-keeper Rian Somers told me about the 60,000 bees in his hives and kindly gave me a little pot of his honey. Talented young journalist Zainab Boladale talked of her journey to becoming a TV journalist and RTE Presenter and talented singer songwriter Michael Moloney blew everyone with one of his own songs.
To add to all the excitement we discovered that Sarah Webb has just been shortlisted for The An Post Book Awards Author of the Year Award.
