It was quite a surprise to meet the personable Schon last night at the Karoun (Armenian) Restaurant in Newtonville. Overhearing that Marash Girl was a regular at the restaurant, Schon introduced herself (not as the sculptor, of course) as a long-time resident, born and bred in Newton! When Marash Girl asked Schon if she knew Marash Girl's father Peter (Newtonville Electric Company in Newtonville), Schon said she wasn't sure, but added that Schon's father was Quint Florist in Newton Centre. It turned out that their fathers were very good friends back in the day!
Schon's studio is in Newtonville, the birthplace of those little ducklings, and Marash Girl's birthplace as well!
