The Miami Book Fair 2017 is upon us and we can’t miss it! Being one of the most anticipated events every year, since 1984, the MBF closes the streets around Miami Dade College’s Downtown Campus to bring to South Florida an array of local and international authors who present and discuss new books to encourage kids to be life-long readers as well as reinforce the habit of reading within young adults and adults alike.
Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy live music from Miami’s coolest bands and will have access to hands-on learning activities during the eight-day event. Many of the panels and readings in Spanish and Creole will be translated simultaneously into English, hence don’t be afraid to explore authors that are outside your comfort zone because language will not be a problem.
Because we know the food is a must when it comes to any event, Miami’s hottest chefs will kick off the fair’s 34th installment with a weekend-long food festival that will give you the chance to savor recipes created by local farm-to-table chefs, just as they appear in their cookbooks. Adrianne Calvo, Victor Santos, and Norman Van Aken are some of the many chefs that will offer bites and showcase demos bringing their book to life.
So if you want to spend the evening with your favorite author, journalist icon, musical/literary superstar, political expert or bestselling novelist, or take the kiddos to one of the seven Children’s Alley’s pop-ups, don’t hesitate and go to www.miamibookfair.com for more information about all the fun.
