Miami Book Fair International

How great is that poster art? Anybody recognize it? Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of A Wimpy Kid books designed it. Great, huh?

This Book Fair sounds really great. 300 authors will gather in downtown Miami to read from their works in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Haitian Kreyol. The International aspect of this fair sounds amazing. Al Gore, Sanjay Gupta, Barbara Kingsolver, Margaret Atwood, and Meg Cabot are just some of the authors that will be participating. 

If only I lived in Florida! If you are in the Miami area from Nov 8-15th be sure to check out all the fun.

Since some of us will not be able to attend how about enjoying a little taste of it here? 

A full list of participating authors will be posted soon.
Also, I will be highlighting a couple of participating authors in the weeks to come with reviews of their books and perhaps a contest or two.

Be sure to check back often!



  1. You are right.. GREAT Poster art.

  2. Isn't it? I love it. Very cute. :)

  3. We have something like that here in Atlanta, or Decatur (just west of the city). Its called the Decatur Book fest, and it was great.. I Love book festivals. I'd like to try the Miami one, now that I know they have one.. thanks!

  4. Book Fairs are so much fun. I am hoping to make it to the Austin one this year. Wish I could make it out to the Miami one. Sounds like fun.
