Book Fair has been a big part of Philippa’s life

The time is early 2008 when Philippa Manton receives an invitation to assist with the RIDBC Book Fair. Fast forward 11 years and Philippa hasn’t missed one since, a remarkable contribution as a volunteer of RIDBC. The contribution is even more significant given this is the 31st, and final, Book Fair. Of her experience she explains “To be involved in something that shares the value of books has been marvellous”.
