The New Suffolk Garland book was created as a key initiative of The Festival of Suffolk to mark the occasion of HM Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with the first copy having already been presented to her as a gift from Suffolk.
As part of the legacy of The Festival of Suffolk, copies of this wonderful book, A New Suffolk Garland, are being presented to every secondary school and public library in Suffolk. The Books will be delivered to all schools week commencing 18th July.
All profits from the anthology are also being donated to the Festival of Suffolk Legacy Fund that will be administered by Suffolk Community Foundation. Grants will be given to charities working to address needs in Suffolk relating to community, health and well-being, opportunity and education, enterprise, environment, and culture and tourism.
With 90 authors and 45 artists and photographers included in The New Suffolk Garland, it is an anthology of the best writing and art, new and old, and is a real celebration of the county of Suffolk. It was edited by Elizabeth Burke, Dan Franklin, John and Mary James, from Aldeburgh Bookshop and is published by The Boydell Press. The book was launched in May and is selling well, with HM The Queen receiving the first copy of the limited special edition.
Please look out for your copy of the book in the post this week.
