« All Events

“Chronicle” reporter and author, Ted Reinstein, joins us to discuss his new book, “New England’s General Stores: Exploring an American Classic.”

The general store is literally as old as America itself. It was a place to pick up mail, the newspaper, and perhaps chat over a cup of coffee and a warm wood stove. In talking about “New England’s General Stores,” 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 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.

A Q&A session and book signing will follow the presentation. Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Friends of the Beverly Public Library.
