If you are already a regular customer of Melissa Walsh, one of Street Roots great vendors, you’ll especially enjoy this edition of Street Roots. It features a story in pictures of Melissa and her husband Sean’s lives, including the obstacles they face and the love between them that carries them through.
And if you’ve never met Melissa or Sean, come and discover this incredible couple that are among so many finding their own path to survival in this city. It’s a compelling piece of photojournalism by Leah Nash that you won’t want to miss.
Street Roots hits the pavement first thing Friday morning, and your vendor will be ready and waiting with this and many other stories to share!
