As one of Time magazine’s best places to live in America, Kennett Square is now being praised in a new book published by two activists and local residents, Joan Holliday and Bob George, writes Fran Maye for the Kennett Paper.

The Story of Kennett: Shaping Our Future One Child at a Time presents the tale of the Chester County town, and how it has become a booming place full of thriving businesses, upscale development, festivals, and other fun events.

“This is not a story in the conventional sense, with a narrative arc and a clear beginning, middle, and end, but a collection of reports, testimonials, and chronicles that together form a tapestry that presents a vivid portrait of an evolving, compassionate, and ambitious town,” said Holliday.

The book has been illustrated by Kennett Square’s own Chris Barber, the award-winning photographer and editor of the Avon Grove Sun newspaper. The book can be purchased on Amazon for $14.99 with all profits going to the Kennett Education Foundation.
