Olivia Lally

Olivia Lally is a storyteller, book doctor, and children’s book enthusiast! Olivia spent more than a decade as a book buyer and children’s section manager in one of Ireland’s best loved bookshops, carefully curating a selection of new, pre-loved and bargain children’s books and programming children’s events. Olivia is interested in children’s literature which challenges discrimination and gender stereotypes and can’t resist a little potty humour. Specialising in lively participatory storytelling, Olivia especially enjoys working with children of different abilities, marginalised communities and younger kids. As a children’s book addict, Olivia gives occasional lectures and talks and regularly contributes reviews to magazines and newspapers.
