Children's Book Launch

This is a collaborative project between five primary schools in Dartmouth and the surrounding area, and involves around 70 children in School Years 5 and 6.

Each school will write and illustrate a different section of the Mayflower journey – background history, escape to and life in Leiden, Holland to Dartmouth on the Speedwell, life in Dartmouth, Dartmouth to America, settling in to new colony, one year later – Thanksgiving.

Their stories will be based on an actual group of Mayflower passengers that will represent each leg of the journey.

The event will be supported by storyteller Katy Cawkwell.
