Ken Gloss: A Bookseller’s Improbable Finds

October 5, 2023 @ 6:00 pm EDT

Sponsored by The Grolier Club

October 5, 6:00pm New York Time

Join Ken Gloss of Boston’s Brattle Book Shop as he speaks on improbable and wonderful finds throughout his career. This is how he describes the surprises he’s experienced while bookselling: “One day you find yourself drinking from Thomas Jefferson’s coffee service, and the next day you’re fumigating your truck of fleas. The house you’re visiting could contain a handful of Turner watercolors, or a roomful of live ammunition.”
