As Miami Beach continues to celebrate its centennial this year, the city is sponsoring a book club that features a novel that showcases a local author and the Beach’s history.
The “One Book, One City” program kicked off Wednesday at the Jewish Museum of Florida, where writer Thane Rosenbaum led a reading of his novel “How Sweet It Is!” The story is set in Miami Beach in 1972.
Several book discussions will be held throughout November:
▪ 2-4 p.m. Nov. 7
Read-A-Thon at the Miami Beach Library Auditorium
▪ 7:30-8:30 p.m, Nov. 15
Book presentation at the Betsy Hotel
▪ 6:30-7:30 p.m., Nov. 17

▪ 5:30-7:30 p.m., Nov. 18
South Shore Book Group at the South Shore Library
▪ 6-7 p.m., Nov. 25

The city hopes to continue the program with a different book each year.
