Local Weekend Events

I know it's only Wednesday, but I'm already thinking of the weekend!

The landmark bookstore, Books & Books, in Coral Gables will be presenting a free poetry writing workshop for elementary students this Saturday starting at 11:00 a.m. The event will be hosted by a Broward College professor and her service dog. This is the perfect event to get kids excited about poetry, especially, writing it!

For more information contact Books & Books at:
265 Aragon Avenue
Coral Gables

Also going on this weekend: Free Sundays in August at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. The garden is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. If you're looking for a beautiful spot to read a book, self-reflect, or just relax, take a comfortable blanket and head out early to the garden. Don't forget to check out the sculptures throughout the site and when you get hungry head to the cafe for a bite to eat and a refreshing smoothie.

Lastly, check out your local library here for upcoming children, teen, and adult events.

  1. Books & Books has good food too. You can't go wrong with any of their sandwiches.
