Author Talk with Ted Reinstein: New England's General Stores

Ted Reinstein is a longtime reporter for Boston’s celebrated nightly TV news-magazine, Chronicle, and author of several books on New England. 
Written with his wife, former ABC journalist Anne-Marie Dorning, New England's General Stores looks at how the humble general store helped shape New England, and how this iconic institution continues to be a vital gathering place for towns all across the region.
This 50-minute presentation full of interesting anecdotes will be followed by a Q&A session. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
Free and open to all, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Avery Lee Williams.
