What better way to find out the ins and outs of Manayunk than from the people themselves? It’s another week where we hit the streets for Why I Love Manayunk, to ask Manayunk visitors and residents why they love where they live, shop, dine, and play.
We met with Laura Sibson to find out why she loves Manayunk. Meet the author of The Art of Breaking Things, a new young adult novel coming out this June! To see what’s new with Laura, check out her website laurasibson.com, Twitter: @laurasibson or Instagram: @lauraosibson
