SHIRLEY — The Friends of the Hazen Memorial Library in Shirley are sponsoring an evening with WCVB-TV’s Chronicle reporter, Ted Reinstein, as he brings stories to life from his newly released book “Wicked Pissed – New England’s Most Famous Feuds” on April 28 at 7 p.m.

From sports to politics, food to literature, to nasty spats over borders and between famed families, New England’s feuds have long peppered the region and seasoned its history. This is a collection of some of the spiciest ones, not to mention the most colorful and enduring.

Reinstein will tell fascinating stories, some known, others not so much, from the history of New England. Some will have you wondering, “how come I didn’t know about that one?”

Following the talk, Reinstein takes questions from the audience, and then will personally autograph his books, which will be on sale at the event. Light refreshments will be served.

Reinstein has been a reporter for “Chronicle,” WCVB-TV/Boston’s award-winning and America’s longest-running, locally-produced nightly news magazine since 1997. In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station’s political roundtable show and writes a weekly opinion column. He lives just west of Boston with his wife and two daughters. He is also the author of “New England Notebook,” published in 2013.

This free event is sponsored by the Friends of the Hazen Memorial Library, 3 Keady Way, Shirley. Call 978-425-2620 for more information.
