Virtual Evening with Authors

Bookworms who look forward to the Miami Book Fair at Miami Dade College each November know that its programming is year-round. It has been for years now. 

The actual street fair will take place online this year from Nov. 15-22 (click here for all the details).

But in these uncertain times, the book fair has had to go virtual (like so many other Miami events have) and is offering a program being called “Physically Distant. Socially Connected.”

To keep up with latest news, sign up for the daily Miami on the Cheap newsletter. You can also follow us on Facebook and on Twitter.

Online offerings include author readings and conversations, popular workshops like First Draft, and a Storybook picnic for kids and their teddy bears.

The program includes:

  • Speak Up Online! – the creative writing program for teens from drafting to performance to publishing – returns on Sept. 19 and continues through Nov. 14. Every Saturday from 3-4 p.m.
  • Programs in Spanish, including 15-minute (and longer) readings with authors who read excerpts from their works.
  • First Draft: A Literary Social with a different author each week. Pour a glass of wine and work on a story around that week’s chosen theme.
