Award winning journalist and author Ted Reinstein well be speaking at the Upton Woman’s Club Open Meeting scheduled for November 17, 2015.
Reinstein is best known for roaming New England and sharing the colorful stories of New England’s people and places as a longtime correspondent for “Chronicle.” In 2002 he was part of a “Chronicle” team that won a prestigious national DuPont-Columbia Broadcast Journalism Award for their coverage of the Big Dig. He is a weekly contributor for WCVB’s “On The Record” and writes a weekly opinion column “And Another Thing.” He has also hosted Popular Mechanics, FreezeFrame, and Lighthouses on various cable channels.
Reinstein also has passion for live theatre and has performed in Chicago, New York, and Boston, in over 500 performances of America’s longest-running non-musical, “Shear Madness,” as well as in award-winning productions of Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman,” and David Mamet’s “Speed-the-Plow.”
In 2013, Globe Pequot Press published his first book, A New England Notebook: One Reporter, Six States, Uncommon Stories. The book, in an unusual encyclopedic style, recounts some of Ted’s favorite people and stories from his many travels around New England for “Chronicle.” Just prior to its May release, National Geographic Traveler selected it as one of “The Best Travel Books of Spring.”
Reinstein will be the Upton Woman’s Club guest speaker on November 17 at 6:30 p.m. at United Parish in Upton. Seating is limited. Please reserve your space by calling Carol Bowen at 529-6648.
