The Stories of the Upstate™ #304: (Blair Knobel) "I will travel for food!"

                    Story #304 comes from the editor-in-chief of Town magazine, Blair Knobel


"It's a wonderful brain exercise every day," is the way the editor-in-chief of Town Magazine, Blair Knoble describes her job.  The Furman University art graduate told us that creating each issue of Town is like cooking a fine meal.  You have different complex dishes that have to be finished on time, making certain that the seasoning is right, having all the right ingredients and making sure none of it burns.  What is served each month is the culture of Greenville and beyond beautifully expressed in word and images.
