Miami Book Fair International 2014
The books are coming! And the readers and writers will follow, as they do by the hundreds of thousands every year for the Miami Book Fair International, an eight-day literary party taking place November 16-23.
First called Books by the Bay in 1984, the two-day street fair has evolved into the largest and finest book fair in America. The Fair has blossomed to encompass numerous special programs including Evenings With ..., Ibero-American Authors Program, Children's Alley, Student Literary Encounters and Antiquarian Annex.
The Fair, in its 30th year, will open Sunday November 17th with the popular Evenings With… series, featuring six nights of readings and discussions with noted authors from the United States and around the world.
On Friday, the Street Fair gets under way. The highlight of the Street Fair is the Festival of Authors, with more than 350 authors reading and discussing their work. Thousands of schoolchildren will help kick off the Street Fair, making the trip downtown Friday to hear authors and participate in Children’s Alley activities. Comics and graphic novels will also be featured.
