We write often about free author readings, free entertainment and free children’s events at our favorite independent bookstore, Books & Books, but we realized we have never written a post pointing out all the free resources Books & Books provides for South Florida. Few cities have the wealth of free literary resources we find at our favorite bookstore.
So here you are:
- Books & Books provides free literary events featuring authors nearly every night at its store in Coral Gables and sometimes at its other stores, in Bal Harbor, Coconut Grove and Suniland.
- Books & Books has free live music in the courtyard of the Coral Gables shop starting at 7 p.m. every Friday and Saturday.
You can find a complete schedule of upcoming free literary events here.
You can also watch the author events from home through free livestreaming. In order to watch the livestream simply visit the event’s livestream page at the time the event is scheduled to start. You should see a video player streaming the live event. If the video is not streaming automatically you may need to press “play.” You can also watch archived livestream events.
