NORTHSHOREMAG.COM 6 APRIL 2020 PHOTOGRAPHS, TOP TO BOTTOM BY MARK MINELLI, BY DENIS TANGNEY JR./ISTOCK, BY JEREMIAH TRUE, AND BY PATRICK SPORLEDER "Reading gives us somewhere to go when we have to stay where we are." —Mason Cooley This American aphorist's clever line could not be truer during this particular April. As our world has come to a standstill and our government has asked all of us to take a big time-out, I hope reading Northshore magazine gives you an escape and ideas for places to plan to visit in our region later on in the year when we can once again explore in person. This issue celebrates the North Shore's rich legacy of arts and culture. Robert G. Pushkar has done an amazing job painting a picture of The Cabot's magical past through his prose. I attended Grammy award-winning singer Patti Austin's performance at the Cabot in January. Her performance was stellar, and the theatre is a dream—so intimate and beautiful. SV Design has done an amazing job with the restoration and renovation work (pro bono), bringing the space back to its former glory. Also in this issue, Jeanne O'Brien Coffey brings the history of the 85-year-old Newburyport Choral Society to life for us, and they have planned a concert for later this year—watch for details. Calvin Hennick takes us into the office of Kevin Anderson to learn about the plethora of celebrity ghostwriting stories his company pens. We visit the city of Haverhill and learn about its urban renewal. Many of its previously vacant mill buildings have been transformed by the arts. And the Salem Arts Association shares their new gallery in a beautiful historic building across the street from the Salem Maritime National Historic Site, which gives a permanent space to local artists' works. Earth Day is this month, and we encourage you to reach out to lawmakers to show support of the state legislature passing bills aimed at reducing greenhouse gas pollution. There are also programs where you can volunteer to clean up our beaches to help protect our coastal environment. In addition, we urge you to support our local economy and the many businesses, retailers, and restaurants affected by the global pandemic. During this time, please purchase gift cards from your favorite eateries and shops and salons to use when we can once again gather together. I wish you all wellness during our big time-out. Nancy E. Berry, Editor WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU Send comments to the editor: Top to bottom, The Cabot turns 100, Urban Renewal in Haverhill, Newburyport Choral Society, and the new Salem Arts Association's Gallery.
