♥ We Heart Book Fairs ♥
This past Sunday ( Nov 15th) concluded the 26th Annual Miami Book Fair in Downtown Miami. The Miami Book Fair is an 8-day literary party :) There is food, music and best of all books - lots & lots of books!! Yayyy...
During Street Fair weekend which was 11/13 - 11/15, more than 250 publishers and booksellers exhibit and sell books, with special features like the antiquarians, who showcase signed first editions, original manuscripts and other collectibles.
The first Miami Book Fair International, founded by Miami-Dade College and community partners, took place in 1984. Since then it has been recognized as the nation’s finest literary festival. In 2001, the Fair became part of the Florida Center for the Literary Arts at Miami-Dade College, a cultural and academic initiative that promotes the advancement and appreciation of literature throughout the year.
