When commissioned to create a sculpture that symbolized the readers of a county newspaper in rural Michigan, Dere Wernher decided that a farmer sitting on a park bench reading the paper would be a perfect choice. The title of the sculpture is the pen name of the newspaper's editor. Wernher cast the sculpture in a small foundry set up in his studio. Only one other casting exists besides this one shown here at Brookgreen Gardens."Len Ganeway"Derek Wernher (born 1938)Bronze, 1980I hope you enjoy today's J.W.
