Coconut Grove cottages featured in new book
Felice at the Bookstore has been telling me about author Beth Dunlop and photographer Claudia Uribe's book, "The Tropical Cottage: At Home in Coconut Grove," which features over 30 Grove cottages.
With all the over development, it's nice to see these quaint, beautiful restorations. They are owned by people you probably see daily around town.
Beth and Claudia will be at the Bookstore in the Grove (3390 Mary Street) on Friday, May 3 for a book signing and Q&A session and many of the locals who are featured in the book will be on hand, too.
Maybe you can also get signatures of the actual folks who are featured in the book! It reminds me of when Arva Moore Parks was presenting her new book on Coconut Grove and many of us featured in the book (see page 126) were signing autographs for each other, as if they were high school yearbooks.
Roger Magolan will be taking photos for his slide show, which is ongoing project at the bookstore. Have you seen it? It runs on the screen behind the cafe counter and it's photos of Grovites and events that have happened at the store. It also featured dogs, classic planes, books and other things.
