Join Beth Lennon (aka Mod Betty), creator of Retro Roadmap, as she highlights cool vintage places, good eats and retro fun! Writing and presenting as Mod Betty, Lennon travels the U.S., visiting mom and pop businesses that have stood the test of time while retaining their authentic vintage charm. Sharing these discoveries with her readers and social followers, she inspires them to go out and visit these places, before they disappear.
Combining her degree in art history and passions for photography and roadtripping, Lennon has documented the disappearing roadside for decades. She has been featured on the front page of the Boston Globe Sunday Travel Section, the Philadelpha Inquirer, Huffington Post, WHYY-TV and interviewed by the BBC, AARP, Hidden City Philadelphia, Inside Jersey and House Beautiful to name a few. She has written for the National Trust for Historic Preseration, the Society for Commercial Archeology and has a regular feature in Vintage Camper Trailers magazine.
Additionally she published a series of printed Retro Roadmap Roadbook travel guides that double as road trip journals. Featuring her favorite vintage and retro destinations in each state, these Roadbooks are not only packed with historic information and travel tips, but also include checklists and places for readers to add their own memories. The Cheste County Library System actually owns several of these Roadbooks so you can check them out and see for yourself.
When not on the road you can often find her researching her next adventure seated inside her vintage 1964 camper - in the town where they filmed The Blob (Phoenixville)!
We hope you can join us for this exciting presentation!
