Local author Susan Mara Bregman will be available to sign copies of book

About the Book and Author:

The golden age of neon in New England lasted more than 30 years,

from the dark days of the Great Depression through the go-go

volume celebrates the style and exuberance of these one-of-a-kind

creations in Boston and Brattleboro, Kittery and Cranston, New
