This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Ken Sanders has been in the book business his whole life, starting in the 1960s when he was running a mail-order business. A short time later he discovered antique and rare books, when he sold an 1830 first edition of The Book of Mormon for $5,000, which is worth well over $100,000 today. He knew he found his true calling which became Ken Sanders Rare Books in downtown Salt Lake City.

The inventory at Ken Sanders Rare Books is vast, eclectic and constantly evolving. In addition to the new, used and rare books they’re famous for, you’ll find art, maps, postcards and photography that all give this downtown Salt Lake City destination at 268 South 200 East its unique experience. Ken is known internationally in the book trade, especially after being featured on the Antique Roadshow multiple times, because of his expertise with LDS books and memorabilia, and is a member of the Antiquarian Booksellers of America Association. He was appointed chair of the security committee and through his hard work, tracked down a thief stealing rare books throughout the Bay Area.

Today, Ken Sanders Rare Books has four employees and is known for their books and as a host for art and literary events.
