Miami Book Fair

Miami Book Fair International is one of the country’s oldest and largest literary festivals and is held annually at Miami Dade College campus. Founded in 1984, its mission is to promote reading, encourage writing, and heighten an awareness of literacy and the literary arts in the city’s multi-ethnic community. It started as a local book festival organized by Dr. Eduardo J. Padrón, the president of Miami-Dade College Wolfson Campus, Mitchell Kaplan, owner of Books & Books, and Craig Pollock of BookWorks, with the cooperation of Miami Dade College and local bookstore owners. In its first year, the first Miami Book Fair known as “Books by the Bay” gathered around 25,000 participants. The annual event grew each year with the help of sponsors, community partners, media support, and later renamed the Miami Book Fair International. Over the years, Miami Book Fair International hosts special programs such as the Festival of Authors, Ibero-American Authors Program, Children’s Alley, Student Literary Encounters, and Antiquarian Annex. The fair is also home to Evenings With…Series, which features renowned authors who are recipients of prestigious awards such as the Nobel Prize for Literature, Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, Casa de las Americas Prize, Pushcart Prize, O’Henry Award, National Magazine Award, among others
