Susan Bregman – A Highway of History: Route 1 from Maine to Massachusetts

Route 1 in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts 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. Join author and photographer Susan Mara Bregman, who traveled Route 1 – from Fort Kent, Maine to Attleboro, Massachusetts – to hear about the story of this highway of history.
