Miami Book Fair International XXVI

Bookworms unite!

2009 will be the 26th year of the world-renowned Miami Book Fair International.  Perhaps some of us take it for granted because it’s right in our backyard, but this is a really big deal!  From now through Sunday the Downtown fair will be hosting a non-stop onslaught of authors, readings, workshops, expos and more, with the book-vendor-filled street fair running all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

There are some truly AWESOME authors and speakers this year – Al Gore, the Daily Show’s John Hodgman, Melvin Van Peebles, Jonathan Lethem and our personal favorite for obvious reasons, Iggy Pop and Robert Matheu talking about the newly released authorized biography of The Stooges!

The bigger events require tickets which are FREE, you just have to reserve them at the Miami Book Fair’s site.  Check out the fair’s full line-up, there really is something for everyone.
