339 Main Street
The Oxford Public Library invites you to a discussion about New England’s General Stores with author and WCVB Chronicle host Ted Reinstein. The talk will take place at the library on 339 Main Street in Oxford at 6:30PM on Tuesday, December 11th. In talking about New England’s General Stores: Exploring an American Classic, 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—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. The presentation runs about 50 minutes, followed by Q&A, and book purchase/signing.
