Synopsis

A selection of poems to celebrate Selby Abbey’s 950th Anniversary has been collated from an initiative as part of the Selby Children’s Literature Festival, organised by Author, Poet & Voice Artist, Christina Gabbitas, supported by the Reverend Canon John Weetman. The initiative was a great way to encourage and educate the children about such an iconic piece of architecture that is steeped in history

Author's Bio

This publication is a collection of poems penned by children age 7-11. Selby Abbey is one of the relatively few surviving abbey churches of the medieval period, and, although not a cathedral, is one of the biggest. It was founded by Benedict of Auxerre in 1069. These poems are a wonderful celebration.
