Our heartfelt thanks to our two wonderful TSF Readers’ Cup patrons who entertained and inspired the competing children at last week’s Readers’ Cup events.  Celebrated writer Dave Shelton, author of A Boy and a Bear in a Boat, spoke to the children about how he became an illustrator and author, while Emma Mandley, translator of A Friend in the Dark by Pascal Ruter, gave an equally inspiring talk on the valuable work of being a translator.
