Friends’ Author Series: Ted Reinstein
Ted Reinstein is back by popular demand, discussing his latest book, New England’s General Stores.
|Thursday, November 8th|

Join Chronicle’s Ted Reinstein as he takes us through the wooden doors of New England’s general stores and back in time, into a Norman Rockwell painting and into the heart of America. New England’s General Stores offers a nostalgic picture of this colonial staple and, fortunately, steadfast institution of small towns from Connecticut to Maine. In tough times, the general store treated customers like family, extending credit when no one else would. Stubborn as New Englanders themselves, the general store has refused to become a mere sentimental relic of an earlier age.
