Book Fair buzz lives on
The booths are gone and the crowds have thinned, but I can still feel the buzz created by Miami Book Fair International.
From the impressive author lineup, educational workshops and Evenings With... series to the Street Fair, Children's Alley, Comix Galaxy and tribute to Mexico, I have received so much positive feedback from people of all ages about this year's literary celebration; and the media echoed our community's excitement by supporting our programming with extensive coverage.
This year’s success would not have been possible without our dedicated volunteers, staff and sponsors, so thank you to everyone who helped out. I'd like to extend a special thank you to Alina Interián, executive director of the Florida Center for the Literary Arts, and Delia López, director of operations for the Fair.
We can be proud to host one of the most respected literary events in the world.
