Canning Town booksellers invited to Buckingham Palace
An independent bookseller has been invited to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation at Buckingham Palace.
Bibliophile Books, a mail order discount bookclub based in South Crescent, Canning Town, will join over 200 holders of Royal Warrants in the gardens as part of the Coronation Festival from July 11 to 14.
Royal Warrants are awarded to businesses or individuals who supply goods or services to the royal household.
Bibliophile Books, established in 1978, was awarded their Warrant in 2011 for supplying books to the Duke of Edinburgh.
Owner Annie Quigley said the event would provide “a great platform to showcase our bargain books”.
