GOOD BOOK STORES (not fences) MAKE GOOD NEIGHBORS! We, at the University of Miami, have been fortunate to be part of the Coral Gables community where our local Books and Books is located. Over the last twenty five years we have teamed up with Books and Books to share many great literary events: we have partnered to host the Caribbean Writers Summer Institute, to numerous readings by novelist including: Chuck Palahniuk, Edwidge Danticat, Manette Ansay, Abraham Yehoshua, Maureen Seaton, Evelina Galang, Lester Goran, Oonya Kempadoo, Ngugi wa Thiong'o. We should all be so fortunate to have neighbors like Books and Books -- their generosity goes well beyond the usual cup of sugar or stick of butter! Oh, did I mention that they have AMAZING desserts in the Café, too!
