The Miami Book Fair returns in November! – The Courier of the Americas


The big book festival in Miami had to be dematerialized last year, which is less attractive, but this year it returns from November 14 to 21 with “face-to-face” and other “online” events, with its famous “Street fair”, which will be from 19 to 21 November. It will be smaller with 70 authors present (instead of hundreds), but the others will be online! Like many organizations, the Miami Book Fair last year learned how to make this type of web event work. There will also be eight evenings of meetings and always an alley of children etc etc …

Admission to the street fair is $ 10 for adults, $ 5 for 13-18 and 62+ and free until 12.

The whole program is here:
