Chronicle’s Ted Reinstein

Join us for Chronicle’s Ted Reinstein and his book, Ted ReinsteinNew England Notebook, on Thursday, October 22 at 7:00 PM at the Dighton Middle School Auditorium. Ted will share with us some of New England’s unique character and stories you will not find in guidebooks.
Readers will meet Vermont’s most famous dairy farmer-turned-movie star, a housewife-turned-Houdini, and the real-life model behind one of Norman Rockwell’s most famous paintings. You’ll learn about the legendary Old Man of the Mountain’s inspiring after-life, and about America’s first expense report. (Hint: Paul Revere’smidnight ride wasn’t free.) You may even meet craftsmen who still make classic covered bridges…and classic wooden outhouses.
New england notebook
After covering every corner of New England for 16 years, “Chronicle” reporter Ted Reinstein got tired of saying, “I have enough stories to fill a book,” so he picked the best stories and wrote one. The result is an engaging almanac that offers plenty of intriguing tidbits and little-known facts, but goes beyond the merely curious to reveal the heart of what Reinstein calls, “this historic and quintessentially American place.”
Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for “Chronicle,” WCVB-TV/Boston’s award-winning-and
America’s longest-running, locally-produced-nightly news magazine since 1997. In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station’s political roundtable show and writes a weekly opinion column. A native of Winthrop, MA, Reinstein received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Brandeis University. He lives just west of Boston with his wife and two daughters. For more information or to request a review copy, please contact Sharon Kunz, publicist, 203/458-4509,
