What makes Kennett Square so special?
We think it's the people -- people like Katee Boyle, whose paintings are room-filling statements, layered and scratched and inscrutable. We think it's people like Ed Rahme of THINK Architecture, who has built his career on transferring the elements of the earth, sun wind and stars into his designs. We think it's people like Tara Dugan, who had the vision for worKS—a retail destination that is a sensory playground where the re-purposed, the unique and the eclectic have found a lovely new home.
In this issue, we explore how parent support groups help families cope when a child is struggling with addiction. We write about the arrival of the Sawmill Grill, an enormously popular restaurant in Oxford that now has a second location in Kennett Square. This issue also includes a look at a book by author Keith Craig that explores the life and baseball career of Kennett Square native Herb Pennock.
Over the past few years, Kennett Square photographer Jie Deng has been developing a project she calls "The People of Kennett Square," a photographic journey into the work of dozens of local residents, from business leaders to artists. We're proud to begin publishing Jie's project, and in this edition, we feature a photo essay where we meet jewelry designer Hattie Weselyk, and learn a little about her life and her work.
