The 12 Days of Tour Stops: Day 10

Bienvenido a Miami, Elizabeth Nathan! I did not know this, but Miami has the world’s largest collection of Art Deco buildings. Crazy, right? Even better, tons of them are painted in that glorious tropical color scheme – pink, yellow, coral, pale blue. I’ve only ever been to Miami as a kid to visit my late great-uncles, and then we spent most of the days at the beach and most of the nights betting on jai alai at the Fontainebleu. (I’m not even kidding.) Jen’s never been, so needless to say we’re beyond excited to spend a couple days there in November.  We’re doing a signing at the Miami Book Fair on Sunday, November 18th – we’ll let you know when we have a time for ya!
