31st Miami Book Fair International

November 16, 2014 - November 24, 2014

Great communities gather around good books.

That’s why Miami Book Fair International is the largest literary event in the country and why we have such generous support from Miami’s ever-growing community of readers, sponsors and friends.

At this year’s Fair, you will experience Knight Foundation’s extraordinary commitment in programs and partnerships throughout the week:

  • daily live-streaming and national event coverage by PBS
  • a major new section of the Fair dedicated to local literary and other artistic talent at “The Swamp”
  • an international children’s theatre festival, Play Time!, produced by Teatro Prometeo
  • a roundtable on the Amazon Effect and profound changes in publishing and literary culture live-streamed throughout the country
  • a new partnership with the National Book Foundation making Miami the only gathering outside New York for the 2014 National Book Awards Winners and Finalists.
  • a new partnership with the Poetry Foundation, helping to make this year’s Fair one of the country’s largest and most prominent gathering of poets.
  • an expanded array of independent publishers and artist-made books during Street Fair weekend.

The energy and funding commitment of Knight Foundation continues after the Fair, when The Center will embark on a research and strategic planning process to truly gauge what our community wants and needs from a literary arts organization. A study that will suggest ways we can best serve a nationwide audience, and how using live-streaming and other technologies, The Center and the Fair can transcend their physical location.

Come share the dream. Support the Fair!
