Fred will discuss Yankee food, including why we think baked beans and vegetables boiled with a piece of corned beef are examples of haute cuisine. He’ll examine Yankee fashion, from the ever-present flannel to rummage sale ensembles. “I’ll also talk about old houses and why we seem to love them, despite the bats in the attic and wiring that looks as if it was installed by Ben Franklin,” says Fred.

Fred will explain life in a small town, where everyone knows your business--often before you do—and he’ll describe the people who live there, from the cheapskate native to the affluent transplant.
