Kampong Lecture Series
Monday, October 10
7:30 p.m. coffee/dessert reception
8 p.m. presentation
As a subtropical city and the southernmost metro area in the U.S., Miami has always lured both visitors and migrants from throughout the Americas. Despite Miamiís seductive appeal, few make the commitment to remain. Today, by many measures, Miami is one of the most transient of all major cities in America. In his new book Miami: Mistress of the Americas Jan Nijman tells the story of this urban transformation, linking Miamiís history and unique geography to the development of the city. Mr. Nijman is the former director of urban studies at the University of Miami.
Lectures are free to Fellows and Members. General public: $10 donation.
