Chronicle’s Ted Reinstein at Groton Public Library
An Evening with Chronicle’s Ted Reinstein. Tues, Nov. 15, 7-8:30 pm. From sports to politics, food to finance, aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over simple boundaries themselves, New England’s feuds have peppered the region’s life for centuries. There are even some that will undoubtedly outlast the region’s ancient low stonewalls. Reinstein, a native New Englander and local writer, offers fascinating stories, some known, others not so much, from the history of New England in this fun, accessible book. Bringing to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, shaped the area itself, Reinstein demonstrates what it really means to be Wicked Pissed.
