In this issue, we profile Dr. Judith Provencal, who teaches astronomy at the University of Delaware and also serves as the resident astronomer at Mount Cuba Observatory. With local artist Sarah Yeoman, we discuss how she has been inspired by art, music, and love during her creative life. Yeoman is an internationally recognized watercolorist who is appreciated for her imagination and unusual perspective.
We talk to Irene Wood who, at the age of 93, still loves designing windows at the Wilmington Country Store. We introduce readers to Jill Hannagan, the owner and instructor at Hockessin Music School, who wants to instill a lifelong love of music in her young students.
We talk to Nancy Sakaduski and Marcella Harte, a writer and an illustrator who met each other three years ago at the Hockessin Art and Book Fair. They eventually decided that their skills would blend well together on a children's book. The fruit of their two-year collaboration, “The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay,” was published this year.
For up-to-the-minute thrills, we take you to the world of Axxion Escape Rooms, which has tapped a variety of fictional worlds to create themed rooms. The subject of the Q&A in this issue is Tom Houser. He and his fiancee, Erin Wallace, opened the intimate Copperhead Saloon in Powder Mill Square earlier this year. In her photo essay, photographer Jie Deng provides a glimpse of Granogue, the sprawling and spectacular du Pont estate.
We hope that you enjoy this latest collection of stories about the Greenville and Hockessin communities!
