Balloons Over Broadway
Greenlight Bookstore (686 Fulton St., Brooklyn)
More than fifty million people watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade on television each year, with an additional three and a half million lining the route in New York City. All of them cheer for the enormous, glorious balloons of beloved characters that float down the avenues. Balloons Over Broadway by renowned illustrator Melissa Sweet tells the inspirational story of Tony Sarg, the marionette master and puppeteer whose imagination and ingenuity gave birth to everyone’s favorite Thanksgiving Day tradition. Greenlight is delighted to have Melissa join us to present her book on Thanksgiving Day weekend; join us to share some holiday spirit and learn more about those beautiful balloons!
