WCVB ‘Chronicle’s’ Ted Reinstein to talk ‘New England’ at Senior Center May 11

WCVB ‘Chronicle’s’ Ted Reinstein to Speak at Senior Center May 11 – Discussion about his book “New England Notebook”

The Woburn Council on Aging invites the community to join us for a special event with “Chronicle’s” Ted Reinstein for a discussion about his book “New England Notebook: One Reporter, Six States, Uncommon Stories” on Thursday, May 11 at 5:30 p.m.

The special event, to be held at the Woburn Senior Center, 144 School Street, is one in a series of “Spring into Summer” events being funded by a $2,500. grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Reinstein appears occasionally in the WCVB Boston Channel 5 studio at the anchor desk or delivering an opinion commentary, but it’s out in the field where viewers are most familiar seeing Ted. From every corner of New England, he’s found the offbeat, the unique, the historical, and the just plain memorable, all while telling the enduringly colorful stories of the region’s people and places.

During his discussion, Reinstein will discuss his book, which is described as colorful context of the region’s unique character, including stories not found in guidebooks. These stories include the diverse people, memorable places, fascinating history, odd pastimes and delicious foods, quirky collectors, skillful craftsmen, and unique entertainers that distinguish New England from every other place on earth.

The Spring into Summer series funded by MCC also includes An Exciting Afternoon of Magic with illusionist Lyn Dillies on Monday, May 15, at 1 p.m.; percussionist Gabe Cabral on Tuesday, June 6, at noon; and Sheryl Faye’s historical series installment: “Helen Keller: Making the Past Present.”

In addition to this round of Spring into Summer MCC grant series, the MCC also works with the Woburn Cultural Council to deliver year-round funding for a variety of programs and events at the Senior Center.
