Not only is this a local appearance, it's a local author too, with a book on a local topic! On Monday, October 27, 2008 at 7:30, Seth Bramson will appear at Books & Books in Bal Harbour Shops. His book is L'Chaim: The History of the Jewish Community of Greater Miami. According to the notice from Books & Books:
Beginning with the arrival of Miami's first Jewish settler, Isidor Cohen, in 1896, Bramson's exciting story takes us through Miami's early days to the present and includes the years of "restricted clientele," as well as the Jewish-owned buildings, businesses, stores, clubs, hotels, restaurants, schools, temples and philanthropic organizations.Also at Books & Books/Bal Harbour next week, author Harold Kimmel will speak about his book I'd Bark But You Never Listen: An Illustrated Guide to the Jewish Dog, Tuesday October 28, 2008 at 7:30pm.
Bramson's unique writing style, coupled with a host of never-before-published photographs and a website of special features, invites the reader to take a historic look at the people and places that have made the Jewish impact and influence on the area such an important part of the fabric of the community. [Note: I tried to find this "website of special features" so I could provide a link to it, but couldn't locate it. If you find the URL, please post a comment!]
