Streaming Starts November 15 | FREE!

Made In Miami. Streaming Worldwide. 

Miami Book Fair, the much-anticipated annual literary celebration that brings authors and moderators, readings, panel discussions, and innovative children’s and youth programming to hundreds of thousands of South Florida fairgoers every November, will be a completely virtual experience this year. Streaming starts November 15, free and on-demand, on a new website created just for the Fair. 

More than 300 acclaimed authors will take part in Miami Book Fair Online (MBFO), with a robust slate of writers across cultures and countries presenting works in fiction, politics, history, memoir, comics, poetry, and other genres in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole, as in years past. Signature programs, such as IberoAmerican Authors and ReadCaribbean will return, and Children’s Alley, dedicated to providing fun learning activities for kids and youth, will also have a digital home.

The “Evening With...” series will be back too, reimagined for the virtual world but still pairing high-profile authors with outstanding moderators for one-on-one conversations that provoke, delight, and intrigue. This year’s lineup includes authors Walter Mosely, Louise Erdrich, P.J. O’Rourke, Terry McMillan, Kevin Kwan, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, and celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson, among others. Emmy-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien, Pulitzer Prize-winner Leonard Pitts Jr., and New York Times book review editor Pamela Paul are just a few of the literary world luminaries who will be leading the dialogues. 

How to Book Fair Online

A free and simple registration is all that’s required to access the MBFO stream. Users will receive email notifications about programs and activities as they become available, plus practical tips on how to navigate the website, create a watchlist, and more. All MBFO programs will be available on a schedule to be published prior to the start of the fair. Although the site will not be fully operational until programs are complete and ready for viewing, the registration page is open now.
