On Monday, January 14 at 7:00 p.m. at Woonsocket Harris Public Library (303 Clinton Street, Woonsocket, RI 02895), Ray Rickman will help you find out. In his fun and revealing Value of the Book workshop, Mr. Rickman will offer free book evaluations drawing on his many years of experience as a rare-book dealer, a former bookstore owner in Providence, and the former host of the Rhode Island Public Television program “Bestsellers.”
In an Antiques Roadshow-type format, Mr. Rickman will discuss which sorts of books tend to have high market values, explain characteristics that can influence the worth of a particular book, and offer complimentary estimates of up to three books for each participant in the workshop. Participation is free and all are encouraged to attend.
