Books

Kevin Maurer and Mitch Weiss: Using government reports, documents and eyewitness interviews in their new book, the co-authors of "Hunting Che" assembled a timeline of the Green Berets-backed effort to capture Argentine revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara. The narrative begins with Che's arrival in Bolivia and follows the U.S. Special Forces-trained Bolivian Rangers who, led by CIA operative and Cuban exile Felix Rodriguez, tracked Che and his armed communist insurgency to the village of La Higuera. Maurer, a co-author of "No Easy Day," about the killing of Osama bin Laden, will appear with the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Weiss at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Books and Books in Coral Gables. 305-442-4408 or BooksandBooks.com. — Phillip Valys

Music

The Marshall Tucker Band: The Southern soul-rockers are still jamming to "Heard It in a Love Song" nearly 40 years after its release, even if the often-karaoked group has only a single original member remaining in singer Doug Gray. The band's tour takes them to the grandstand at the Mardi Gras Casino at 8 p.m. tonight, where they will no doubt spread the blue-eyed soul of "Can't You See" and "Fire on the Mountain" with the same warmth as they did for "Live! From Spartanburg, South Carolina," their live album released earlier this year. $20-$60, with a post-concert fireworks show. 954-924-3200 or MardiGrasCasinoFl.com. — Phillip Valys
