PEMBROKE, N.H. (AP) — A frequent guest appraiser on PBS' "Antiques Roadshow" is speaking about the value of old and rare books at the Pembroke Public Library.

Ken Gloss of the Brattle Book Shop in Boston is scheduled to speak Wednesday, Jan. 13 at 6:30 p.m.

Gloss, the second-generation owner of the store, will talk about and show some of his favorite finds and describe some of the joys of the "hunt," as well as explain what makes a book go up in value.

Following his talk and a question-and-answer session, he will give free verbal appraisals of all books that attendees have brought with them or will do so at the store — one of the country's oldest and largest antiquarian bookstores.
