budget hotel near Miami Book Fair at Comfort Suites Miami. Miami Book Fair is an annual literary festival event realized by Miami Dade College. During eight days in November, hundreds of authors and thousands of readers converge in downtown Miami for the nation's premier literary festival.
Miami Book Fair, which has become a model for other literary fairs across the country, brings over 300 renowned national and international authors to a week-long celebration of all things literary and includes pavilions for translation, comics, children, and young adults. The mission of Miami Book Fair is to promote reading, encourage writing, and heighten an awareness of literacy and the literary arts in the city's multi-ethnic community.
Originally known as “Books by the Bay”, Miami Book Fair was founded in 1984 by Miami-Dade College Wolfson Campus President, Eduardo J. Padrón, Books & Books owner, Mitchell Kaplan, Craig Pollock of BookWorks, as well as other local independent bookstore owners, in cooperation with the Miami-Dade Public Library System. The two-day street fair grew steadily each year and by the 1990s, the renamed Miami Book Fair had become the largest literary festival in the country.
