The New Normal New England Road Trip with Ted Reinstein  (225,838 Views)


Thursday
6:30 PM
ZOOM

During a challenging time when most people are limiting their travel, this talk takes folks along on a rollicking ride around New England. . . . all in just one hour, and all from the comfort of their own home! Author of three books about New England and longtime “Chronicle” reporter Ted Reinstein is your tour guide as you go from Maine to Rhode Island, Mt. Washington to Mt. Mansfield, and Berkshire foliage to Fenway Park. But Ted’s 20-plus years of reporting and telling stories from all over New England means this is not your average bus tour. Prepare to meet colorful characters who’ve done the darndest things, learn odd facts about familiar places, and of course—this being a Ted talk—expect to visit at least a few fabulous classic diners. (Spoiler alert: Ted reveals where to find THE best clam chowdah in America—and it’s right here in New England!) Ted will take questions following the talk.

This program will be presented via Zoom. Questions? Stop by or give us a call. Free. Register on www.BristolLib.com
