Everyone is invited to meet the new members and hear from Jim about his latest book, “Dining Out In Boston” a topic near-and-dear to my stomach. Per Amazon: “Over the years, Boston has been one of America’s leading laboratories of urban culture, including restaurants, and Boston history provides valuable insights into American food ways. James C. O’Connell, in this fascinating look at more than two centuries of culinary trends in Boston restaurants, presents a rich and hitherto unexplored side to the city’s past. O’Connell reveals a unique history sure to whet the intellectual and nostalgic appetite of Bostonians and restaurant-goers the world over.”
James C. (Jim) O’Connell is a Community Planner at the Boston Office of the Northeast Region of the National Park Service, where he specializes in planning for historic sites and heritage areas. He has a B.A. from Bates College and an M.A. and Ph.D. in American Urban and Cultural History from the University of Chicago. Before joining the National Park Service in 2001, Jim served for 10 years as Economic Development Officer of the Cape Cod Commission, the regional planning and land use regulatory agency for Cape Cod. He was involved with economic development planning, economic impact analysis, community outreach, and the development of the Heritage Cape Cod program.
