Kenneth Gloss of the Brattle Book Shop & Friends of the Library Annual Meeting

On Monday, June 13th at 6:30 p.m., Kenneth Gloss, proprietor of the Brattle Book Shop, will be at the Central Library to give a talk on rare books. He'll also estimate the value of books brought by members of the audience. Please come early to settle in.

Kenneth Gloss has made numerous appearances on PBS’s Antiques Roadshow and WBZ Radio. He regularly speaks at libraries, historical societies, and other public and private organizations throughout New England. Ken’s popular presentations are filled with anecdotes and memories of books sought and books found. He brings many examples of books and ephemera that he’s acquired over the years such as the poster from the play Lincoln saw the night he was assassinated, the sales brochure for the Titanic, and the program from the Red Sox’s World Series winning 1918 game.

After the presentation, there will be refreshments and a brief meeting reviewing the year's highlights. Everyone is invited.
