On Tuesday, June 12 at 11:00 am the City of Sunny Isles Beach invites you to join us for a special book signing event in the Miami-Dade SIB Branch Library at the SIB Government Center located at 18070 Collins Avenue. Author Ellen J. Uguccioni and Photographer David Gartner will be present to sign previously purchased copies of the new book.
A Source of Community Pride: The Architecture of Sunny Isles Beach will be available for sale at the Sunny Isles Beach Visitor Center at 18070 Collins Avenue, Monday to Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm. The book is a celebration of the architectural design of buildings constructed since incorporation in 1997. Some of South Florida’s most celebrated architects designed visually stunning structures that many residents now call home.
The book will retail for $39.99 plus tax and is now available as a first edition printing while supplies last. Residents can purchase one copy per household at the discounted rate of $20 per book with the coupon postcard mailed to every home. Additional copies and those without the coupon postcard will be sold at the retail price.
