MIAMI (September 11, 2015)

The Deering Estate is pleased to present author and longtime Cutler Bay resident, Ernie Sochin, for an author’s presentation and book signing of “When I Was Your Age”. The book describes the author's first-hand experiences of the generation gap and shares his lessons as a visiting lecture at local elementary and middle schools. Simply put, he loves reminiscing about the old days, and has written a book comparing those days to the present.
