Collector's Book Salon: Tony Weller

On May 25, Tony Weller will discuss 17 reasons books might increase in value. Tony has sold books at Sam Weller Books, renamed Weller Book Works in 2012, since the 1970s. In a massive bookstore with many topics, Tony was awed by the knowledge of older booksellers before becoming overwhelmed by what seemed to be an ever-increasing and insurmountable amount of book information. In the 1980s, he started carefully listing and defining the traits that caused a few books to appreciate in value. The list started with roughly a dozen factors and grew to 17 by the mid-1990s. Half of them are quite uncommon. Two of them account for a majority of collected books. More importantly, the analysis becomes an examination of human desire and the reasons a few desirable books grow in value because of inadequate supply. Collectors navigate by personal interest. A clever bookseller adds clients’ interest to his own. Meet book collectors and unique thinkers at Weller Book Works Collectors’ Book Salon. Glasses are filled and socializing begins at 6:30. Collector’s Chats begin at 7:15.

Saved by a moonshining hermit, Ethan must join a whitewater rafting group and make his way back to civilization. But someone in the canyons is killing to protect their illegal dig for ancient treasures. Ethan must learn who he can and cannot trust, survive the harsh desert, and unravel the mysterious murders. The fight of his life begins now... RAPTOR CANYON: An impromptu murder leads a hermit named Relic to an unlikely set of dinosaur petroglyphs and swindlers using the unique rock art to turn a pristine canyon in to a high-end tourist trap. When attorney, Wyatt, and his boss travel to the site to approve the next phase of financing, Wyatt learns the truth about their unorthodox role in the project. A corrupt security chief runs Relic and Wyatt off of the site and the unusual pair must endure each other while fleeing through white-water rapids, remote gorges, and hidden caverns. Faye, who shares covert ties with the treasured site, catalyzes their desperate plan to fight back and to recast the fate of Raptor Canyon.
