Books Barrage Miami

By Mark Pulaski

The 30th annual Miami Book Fair International brought thousands of literary fans to Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus to partake in a week-long paperback celebration featuring hundreds of authors and countless scores of books. Speakers this year included Dan Brown, Chris Matthews, Pat Conroy, Congressman John Lewis,  and Samuel G. Freedman. Book Fair staples such as the popular “Evenings With…”  series, Children’s Alley, book signings, live  performances, and the ever-popular weekend street fair engulfed Wolfson Campus from Nov 17 through the 24th. Spain was the  featured country this year to  commemorate the 500 year anniversary of the arrival of Juan Ponce de Leon to the shores of Florida.
