GROWING UP

   "When Will My Grown-Up Kid Grow Up?" by Dr. Jeffrey Arnett claims to cover every aspect of life for an 18- to 29-year-old, from that first taste of independence at college to that time at the end of the 20s, when the majority of kids are settling down. It aims to explain what grown children are going through intense self-focus, instability, a feeling of being in-between mixed with a sense of possibilities and how parents should deal with these changes. 6:30 p.m. Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables. Details: (305) 442-4408 or www.booksandbooks.com.

THE SLIPPAGE

   In Ben Greenman’s "The Slippage," William and Louisa Day are a suburban husband and wife with no children confronting the question of what their relationship means to them and if and how it will survive. One day, after weeks of bizarre behavior — disappearing at parties, hoarding mail — Louisa approaches William with a stark request: "I want you to build us a house." Caught off guard, William is suddenly forced to reckon with his own hopes and desires, his growing discomfort at home and work, and, in the end, his wife’s ultimatum. 8 p.m. Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables. Details: (305) 442-4408 or www.booksandbooks.com.

LAND FORMS

   Carl Abbott’s "Informed by the Land" tells the story of his youth in the "low-country’ of Georgia to his acceptance to graduate school at Yale University. At Yale, Abbott would study architecture under professor Paul Rudolph, and would lead classmates and future Lords Richard Rogers and Norman Foster on a pilgrimage west to experience the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. The book also illustrates the design process Abbott has developed by which the building forms evolve from the land itself. 8 p.m. Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables. Details: (305) 442-4408 or www.booksandbooks.com.

Saturday 5/11
