Miami Book Fair InternationalThe mission of Miami Book Fair International is to promote reading, encourage writing, and heighten an awareness of literacy and the literary arts in our multi-ethnic community.  Miami Book Fair International is a full-scale international event that includes a Sunday-to-Sunday schedule of stellar programs, readings and special activities.

The Miami Book Fair International Schedules are beginning to be finalized.  On the next page, you will find links to the schedules for the week long event in Miami, Florida. 

Well over 300 authors take part in the Fair’s prestigious line-up of back to back author presentations. All day Saturday and Sunday, November 15 and 16, they make Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus come alive with readings and panel discussions.

You can find the Schedules for Saturday and Sunday Readings and Panel Discussions here:



This year, the Fair developed new programming aimed specifically teens 12 to 17 years old – those a little too old for Dr. Seuss, but not quite ready for Russell Banks. The lineup includes storytelling workshops, acting and dancing sessions, rock band performances, poetry and comic book presentations.
