Local author and WCVB television host Ted Reinstein will give a virtual talk called "Fighting Back: New England Underdogs" via Zoom. This presentation will profile several extraordinary people who overcame enormous odds and daunting challenges to create, succeed, or just live a life of inspiring worth and dignity. While some of these stories are also culled from his 3 books, others are from more recent Chronicle programs. All are brand-new elements as a talk, and have not been included in his previous book events.
Mr. Reinstein is best known in New England as a journalist and reporter for Chronicle, Boston's celebrated (and America's longest-running, locally-produced) TV news-magazine. In 2002, he was part of the Chronicle team honored with a prestigious national Dupont-Columbia Broadcast Journalism Award for their coverage of Boston's controversial "Big Dig," the nation's largest-ever public works project. While he also appears in the studio at the anchor desk or delivering an opinion commentary, 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 moving, and the just plain memorable, all while telling the enduringly colorful stories of the region's people and places. He is a prolific author, a celebrated actor, and is the co-author of a full-length play called "Yom Kippur in Da Nang." He will also be joining us again via Zoom in April with a program called "The New Normal New England Road Trip."
This virtual event is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library, and is free and open to the public. Advance registration is required, and a Zoom connection link will be Emailed to you on the scheduled date. We encourage you to download the Zoom link to your electronic device in advance. Please join us for a fun and fascinating program!
