Antiques Roadshow: Books

The North Conway Public Library will present Ken Gloss, a frequent guest appraiser on PBS’ Antiques Roadshow, for a presentation on the value of old and rare books at 6 p.m. at the Obs-Weather Discovery Center on Main St. in North Conway Village.

Gloss will talk about and show some of his favorite finds of old and rare books and describe some of the joys of the "hunt," as well as explain what makes a book go up in value. He has many fascinating anecdotes to share as well as guidelines for what to look for when starting a collection. There is also a Q&A session before the conclusion of his talk.

Following the talk and question-and-answer session, he will give free verbal appraisals of all books that attendees have brought with them or will do so at his shop in Boston, the Brattle Book Shop, one of America’s oldest and largest antiquarian book stores.

The program is FREE of charge, although donations to the Library are greatly appreciated.
