This volume of personal essays and photographs celebrates the intersection of memory and place. Kephart writes lovingly, reflectively about what Philadelphia means to her. She muses about meandering on SEPTA trains, spending hours among the armor in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and taking shelter at Independence Mall during a downpour. In Love, Kephart shares her love of Reading Terminal Market at Thanksgiving: 'This abundant, bristling market is, in November, the most unlonesome place around.' She waxes poetic about the shoulder-to-shoulder crowds, the mustard in a Salumeria sandwich, and the 'coins slipped between the lips of Philbert the pig.' Kephart also extends her journeys to the suburbs, Glenside and Ardmore--and beyond, to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania; Stone Harbor, New Jersey; and Wilmington, Delaware. What emerges is a valentine to the City of Brotherly Love and its environs. In Love, Philadelphia is 'more than its icons, bigger than its tagline.'"--  |c Provided by publisher.
