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,” Mr. Rickman will offer book evaluations in an Antiques Roadshow-type format. He 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.
In addition to being a longtime rare-book dealer, Mr. Rickman is the founder of Rickman Group, a Providence-based management consulting firm that works with nonprofit organizations and private companies to improve their strategic, financial, and operational position and performance. He is also a former state representative, deputy secretary of state, and a past president of the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society. Mr. Rickman lectures on a wide variety of cultural and historical topics pertaining to American literature and African American leaders, and conducts regular walking tours highlighting African American history in Providence.
Admission is $5 for Linden Place members and $10 for non-members.
