Join author Ted Reinstein as he discusses his book New England’s General Stores: Exploring an American Classic. 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.
