Author Talk: Ted Reinstein and New England’s General Stores: Exploring an American Classic: The general store is as old as America itself. It conjures a country-like place where kids come in to buy penny candy, and adults to buy everything from fresh vegetables to four-penny nails. It was a place to pick up mail, the newspaper, and perhaps tarry a bit on a chilly morning to chat over a cup of coffee and a warm wood stove.
In profiling the colorful stories of some of New England’s most iconic general stores, the long, ongoing story of this remarkable region itself comes to life. All are welcome to this lively talk!
Reinstein has been a reporter for Boston’s WCVB-TV’s “Chronicle" since 1995. Copies of this and Reinstein's other books will be available for purchase. No registration is required and all are welcome.
