Whitman Publishing authors Kenneth Bressett and Q. David Bowers will meet with collectors at the Whitman display (lot #285, near the Collector Exhibits) at the 2016 American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money in Anaheim.
Two meet-and-greet events are planned: one from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Thursday, August 11, and one from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. Friday, August 12.
Ken Bressett—affectionately known as “Mr. Red Book”—is the longtime Senior Editor of the Guide Book of United States Coins and the author of many hobby books. Q. David Bowers is the author of more than 50 guide books, encyclopedias, and other standard references. Both are past presidents of the ANA, and both are inductees in the ANA Numismatic Hall of Fame.
Ken and Dave will autograph copies of their books, talk with hobbyists, and pose for photos. Visitors are invited to ask questions about ongoing numismatic research, pricing and the rare-coin market, paper money, medals, tokens, and any other hobby topics.
A full display of books by both authors will be available for purchase, with ANA members entitled to a 10% discount. Ken and Dave will also autograph older copies of their books brought to the show.
There will be a free prize raffle at the Thursday “Hour With Ken and Dave” event.
“This is a rare opportunity to meet two of the hobby’s living legends,” says Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker. “Ken and Dave are also two of the friendliest people in numismatics, and they love to visit with collectors. Bring your camera, say hello, ask questions, and you’ll take home some wonderful memories from the ANA World’s Fair of Money.”
