GPL Presents: The Story of Route 1 in Maine, New Hampshire & Massachusetts

Route 1

About This Event

Join us for a presentation by Susan Mara Bregman, based on her new book, Along Route 1: Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.

Bregman’s book is an unapologetic combination of historic gravity, exuberant entertainment, unexpected juxtapositions, and wonderfully kitschy roadside attractions. New England road trippers will encounter roller coasters and candlepin bowling, lobster rolls and homemade pie, colonial-era taverns and granite fortifications. Mile after mile, Route 1 tells a story about history, survival, loss, and change.

Writer and photographer Susan Mara Bregman is the author of Arcadia Publishing’s New England Neon and New England Candlepin Bowling. A native New Yorker, she moved to Boston after graduating from college and never left. The remarkable photographs in this book came from historical societies, museums, libraries, universities, and private collections.
