Description: In talking about New England's General Stores: Exploring an American Classic, written with his wife, Anne-Marie, broadcast journalist Ted Reinstein shares the rich and colorful history of this iconic institution, how they figured in the rise of early American commerce, why they began to fade, and why - like another New England icon, the diner - they have begun to come back and even be re-invented and re-imagined for a new era. Told with anecdotes from a variety of local landmark stores across the region, the presentation is accompanied by the award-winning photography of Art Donahue. Followed by Q&A, and book purchase/signing.
Since 1995, Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for Boston's WCVB-TV's "Chronicle," the nation's longest-running locally-produced nightly newsmagazine. Ted is a native of Winthrop, Massachusetts, and lives just west of Boston.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Worcester Public Library
