Between Sunday, November 4 and Sunday, Nov. 11, hundreds of authors from the United States and abroad will gather at the Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami for the 24th Annual Miami Book Fair International.

Each year, the fair overflows with the top best-selling authors, and this year will be no exception.

"As we head toward a quarter of a century of celebrating literature, I am proud to see that the Fair continues to be a vibrant, important part of South Florida’s cultural landscape," says Alina Interian, Executive Director of the Florida Center for the Literary Arts at Miami Dade College. "Our programs this year will reflect the preoccupations, as well as the joys of our community and our nation."

Miami Book Fair International is a premier program of the Florida Center for the Literary Arts at Miami Dade College and is held at the college’s Wolfson Campus at 300 N.E. Second Ave., Miami, FL, and surrounding downtown streets.
