The Ocean City Free Public Library located in Ocean City, New Jersey, has just had an incredible mural painted over the walls featuring 10 authors sitting on the beach with their most famous works.
Included in the mural are authors: Edgar Allan Poe, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Gay Talese, Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Margaret Atwood, William Shakespeare, James Joyce, and Maya Angelou.
The image above shows J.K. Rowling sitting with Gay Talese.
This beautiful mural was painted by artists Nancy Palermo and Susan Rau. "I think it is inspiring, and it helps to show people to pay more attention to what authors look like," said Nancy Palermo.
Susan painted the background of the boardwalk that shows recognizable buildings and added the Hogwarts castle to the mix. "It's fun to walk in and see something different."
If you are in the Ocean City, New Jersey area, be sure to check out this beautiful work of art.
