Melanie Hope Greenberg has written AND illustrated a book called "Mermaids on Parade" and there will be an opening launch party and Art Exhibition over at Superfine on Wednesday night.
Melanie will be there autographing copies of this fab book. I haven't seen the whole thing but as you can see from this illustration she includes real live Coney Island personalities such as Dick Zigun in her story. The art exhibition goes until July 6th and all ages are welcome at the opening.
