If anyone knows about power shopping, it's Mitchell Wolfson, Jr. After 30 years spent accumulating a vast assortment of fascinating stuff, the inveterate globe-trotting collector had to find a place for his 70,000-plus objects. Where better than in a museum that bears his name? Tonight at 6:30 at the Wolfsonian-FIU (1001 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) in a lecture titled A Collector's Life: Bone and Marrow, hear Wolfson talk shop -- and shopping! Admission is $10 for the lecture only; for $50 each, 25 people can feed their faces as well as their minds by enjoying dinner with Wolfson. Call 531-1001. (NK)

South Florida can be a bit kooky at times, but that's just fine with folkie Grant Livingston. It gives him a lot to sing about. The Miami native is well-known for his songs, which contain plenty of social commentary and are sprinkled with references to the environment and to prominent Miamians such as Julia Tuttle and Henry Flagler. Hear Livingston croon his Florida tunes at 7:00 tonight at the Barnacle State Historic Site, 3485 Main Hwy., Coconut Grove. Admission is five dollars. Call 448-9445. (NK)

Three things Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin grew up loving as a kid: her family, books, and baseball. She retains a fondness for all three, as you will hear at 8:00 tonight at Books & Books (296 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables) when she reads from her best seller Wait Till Next Year: A Memoir, a poignant tale about growing up in the New York suburbs during the Fifties. Admission is free. Call 442-4408. (
