Value of the Book

The library welcomes former rare-book dealer Ray Rickman for a fun, interactive program exploring what makes books valuable and which types of books have the highest retail value. Are you holding onto a rare first edition? Have a priceless signed copy?  A sought-after collectors' item? Bring up to three books to this workshop with rare-book expert Ray Rickman and he will provide a free appraisal.

Free and open to the public. No registration required.

Mr. Rickman is a former state representative and the founder of The Rickman Group, a Providence-based management consultant firm. He is a  long-time rare book dealer in Providence and the former host of "Bestsellers" on Rhode Island Public Television.
