Our Events

Our luncheons are held on the Coral Gables campus of University of Miami. Please see each event listing for its venue details.

Each author event carries a per-person charge of $55 to cover the cost of the event.

Prologue members receive a signed copy of the featured book as part of their membership benefits. As inventory allows, members’ guests and other guests may receive a book, and additional books may be available for purchase.

Parking restrictions are strictly enforced on the University campus. It is always recommended that event attendees take advantage of the valet parking provided courtesy of The Prologue Society

Luncheon attendees are invited to bring in their unwanted "Prologue-type" books for donation to The Education Fund, who provides them and other materials to Miami-Dade County Public Schools teachers, free of charge. If you have a large quantity of books, we may be able to arrange for a pickup, so reach out to us for assistance.
