We have many festival's throughout the years whether the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, Coconut Grove Arts Festival or even the Miami Tennis Open in Key Biscayne. The Miami Book Fair, celebrating it's 32nd year, is one of our crown jewel of events in South Florida. Co-produced in association with the Miami Dade College, the festival gathers book lovers, authors, and the art inclined to enjoy a week of festivities, culminating in a three day street fair.
Along with a large selection of books of all titles and likes, some of the authors that attended included former Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, TV personality Travis Smiley, theater star Alan Cummings, fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, humorist writer Dave Barry and Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi.
Other locals we bumped into included Tara Solomon, Sarah Arison, Arva Parks Moore, Andrew Kaufman, Brett Graff, Michelle Oka Donner and Elliot Rodriguez.
The festival also includes interactive area dedicated to children, live music, great food options and everything LIVE across the country on C-SPAN 2. SEE GALLERY
