Mayes, you may remember, is the author of the bestselling Under the Tuscan Sun, which was made into a movie with Diane Lane. Chances are you are quite jealous of her because she has a gorgeous home in Tuscany and cooks fabulous Italian meals with fresh ingredients and writes wildly successful books. Or maybe that's just me.
In any case, tickets to the event are $40 and will include entrance to the garden, a tram tour of the premises, reception with the author, talk/lecture in the Visitor Center and an autographed copy of Every Day in Tuscany, which you'll receive the night of the event. Tickets are available at any Books & Books location or at Fairchild, located at 10901 Old Cutler Road.
This event marks the launch of the Books & Books at Fairchild Garden Series, an ongoing seasonal partnership in collaboration with Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and Women’s Chamber of Commerce of Miami-Dade County.
