Journalist and author, Ted Reinstein, returns on Thursday, October 4 at 7:00pm to share his newest book, New England’s General Stores: Exploring an American Classic, co-authored with his wife, Anne-Marie Dorning. 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. Sign up. Books will be available for purchase.
