Tom Austin was the Bard of South Beach — he sang its beauty, its corruption, its glitter and its ghastliness–and he did it with wit, verve, and eloquence. He was also a loving companion, a beloved father and brother, a proud son of Coral Gables, and a good friend to so many.

Join us for an afternoon of readings from some of his most iconic columns, some remembrances, and a tip of the hat to the man who some called the Evelyn Waugh of Miami-Dade.

Refreshments and light bites for invited guests in the Books & Books courtyard, 12 – 1 PM, hosted by Claire Austin. Parking is available at the Museum Garage, 220 Aragon Ave.

Sunday, December 4, 1 – 3 PM at Books & Books Coral Gables.
