A rare book specialist and appraiser frequently seen on national TV, Gloss will discuss growing up in the book business and share insights into the history of his bookshop (c. 1825) among other anecdotes. Following the presentation, he will answer questions and provide free verbal appraisals of books on-site or at a later scheduled date at his shop in Boston.
“I was destined to work with books,” said Gloss, who became sole proprietor of this business upon his father’s death in 1985. “My parents told me that ‘book’ was the very first word I spoke.”
Ken Gloss’s presentation will take place on Thursday, August 25, 6:00 p.m. at Gilford Community Church, 19 Potter Hill Road, Gilford, NH. Preregistration is not required.
