  • Author night: Ted Reinstein (6:30 – 7:30 pm) @ Southborough Library, Main Level: New England is as dotted with colorful and fascinating feuds as it is with low stone walls and big, red barns. And many of them go back just as far! For instance, did you know that the Breeds and the Bunkers are still fighting over a hill? Or that the revolution is still being fought—by Lexington and Concord?! From the colonial era, through early aviation to Red Sox-Yankees and present-day food fights, Ted Reinstein tells us who’s really “Wicked Pissed” in New England, and why. Followed by Q&A, and book-selling/signing.

Families should bring their own baskets so kids can collect “eggs” with candy inside. The event begins at 10:30 am for posing with the Easter Bunny. (Be sure to bring your camera for a snapshot!) The “hunt” begins promptly at 11:00 am. For details, see dedicated post.
