Ted Reinstein is best known in New England as a journalist and reporter for Chronicle, Boston’s celebrated TV news magazine.  Ted is also an author and will be here to discuss his newest book, New England’s General Stores:  Exploring an American Classic” which was written in collaboration with his wife, Anne-Marie Dorning.

Ted shares the rich and colorful history of New England’s General Stores, 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.

Ted’s book will be available for purchase at the end of the program.
