Joseph Coelho with Appledore Book Festival at GTS
Joseph Coelho was here with two Year 8 classes today.
He said that at a young age he was behind with his reading and learning.
Finding his library and teachers brought his creative ideas together - writing and performing his stories and poems.
He has published over a dozen books including anthologies and ‘Fairy Tales Gone Bad’
Try ‘Zombierella’ for something scary and creepy.
Joseph read from ‘The Girl Who Became a Tree’ - a story told in poems
You can borrow this now from GTS library.
Enjoy the mixture of real life, myth, and fantasy - it’s a powerful exploration of grief and renewal.
We had a sneak preview of his latest ‘Fairy Tales Gone Bad’ book.
Thank you for coming to GTS Joseph Coelho!
