World Book Week 2018 - Claudia Gauci

Author and poet Claudia Gauci popped over to San Anton school to meet with the Grade 5 students.

Her latest book, Magni taż-Żmien, is about the relationship between a boy and his grandpa. The age difference between the two is more pronounced because of technology. Grandpa has no idea how to use a computer whereas most of the 'machines' that he used in his youth are unknown to his nephew. However, despite the generation gap (or two!), grandpa and his nephew share a bond that bridges whatever differences they might have.

Ms Gauci read the story to the students and they enjoyed it so much that they were very keen to share their own grandparents' stories, and stories about 'old' machines.

At the end of the session, they had their books signed. It was a great visit!
