An all-access pass to America's first (and favorite) reality television program -- boasting over ten million viewers each week -- Antiques Roadshow! If you're a fan of PBS's top-rated Antiques Roadshow, you've probably wondered -- what would it take to get your family treasure on the program? What happens to the antiques after the show airs? Are the appraisers ever wrong? And will Antiques Roadshow come to my hometown? In this four-color, fully illustrated guide to America's favorite treasure-hunting program, Antiques Roadshow Behind the Scenes reveals inside information about the participants, the appraisers, the fans, and the antiques that make up the show, direct from the woman who makes it all happen -- executive producer Marsha Bemko. Learn what it really takes to put on a Roadshow event (and why certain cities are more likely to get a visit from the show than others), who gets chosen to be on air (and what items producers are really looking for), what it takes to be an appraiser (and how even the experts make mistakes) ... and what happens when things go terribly wrong (such as the occasional antique that turns out to have been stolen!). In addition, learn which books, websites, and resources your favorite appraisers recommend, and get updates on some of the most popular and notorious items ever featured on the show. From priceless tips to the juicy family secrets hidden in dusty heirlooms, Antiques Roadshow Behind the Scenes is both an invaluable resource and a fascinating slice of Americana.

Carnival Glass, Bonnie Dunlop’s new fiction collection, is an examination of the infirmity of human relationships — marriages, brotherhood, friendships, parent–child relations hindered by negligence and death — and how strange providence can send a sane and settled person entirely off the rails. These stories honour how we love and take care of each other, and how, inevitably, we fail each other too. Dunlop’s settings — dusty ranches, near–ghost towns of Southwest Saskatchewan, infinite beaches of Tofino, BC, small prairie cities in the 60s and exotic locales of contemporary Mexico— are built with a quiet grace and familiarity and remain integral to her stories. It is with such detail that the assured writing in Carnival Glass situates award–winning author Bonnie Dunlop as a contending voice for women’s fiction.
