About the Book:
The books are definitely coming to downtown Miami as the nation’s finest literary festival, the Miami Book Fair International holds its annual celebration. This eight-day literary party will commence on the 12th of November and is expected to have over a hundred-thousand readers and writers in attendance. Distinguished authors from the United States and other parts of the globe, as well as book lovers, will be gracing the Fair and its many activities.
Formerly known as “Books by the Bay”, the Miami Book Fair was founded in 1984 by Miami-Dade College. The growth and success of the very first event which took place in the same year were endeavored by Miami-Dade College in cooperation with the Miami-Dade Public Library System, Wolfson Campus President, Eduardo J. Padron, and local independent bookstore owners Mitchell Kaplan of Books & Books and Craig Pollock of BookWorks. The team had reached their success during the 90’s, when the two-day street fair grew steadily and became the largest literary festival in the country, thus acquiring its well-earned name, Miami Book Fair.
Once again, the Festival will bring over hundreds of renowned national and international exhibitors together as it continues to become a model for other fairs across the country. Events and activities include the Street Fair, book signings, an interactive children’s area, live music, workshops, and a special six-night event, “Evenings With…” featuring readings and discussions with notable authors from both, the U.S., and from around the world.
This year, BookBlastPro and Dr. Nanette Crighton will be joining the Street Fair weekend together with more than 450 authors and exhibitors. The Festival of Authors will take place on the 17th – 19th of November and the festival-goers can expect to see Crighton at the BookBlastPro booth where they will have the opportunity to learn about her and her children’s book entitled, The Christmas Sprytre Encounter: Package Peeking. They may even witness the filming of her interview, and will have a chance for a personal; book signing! The Christmas Spryte Encounter: Package Peeking is another edifying children’s book by Crighton that is timely for the Christmas Season. It introduces the character of the boy named Patrick who gets visited by a, “Peeking Police” while hiding beneath the branches of the Christmas tree, tearing and opening packages to find out what’s inside. The Peeking Police warns Patrick about not touching the presents until Christmas morning otherwise he will only get a bundle of switches for Christmas. This magical story will be enjoyed not only by children but all book lovers at the Miami Book Fair!
The Miami Book Fair invites the book lovers to join the annual celebration as it remains to uphold the cognizance of reading ability and literary arts in the city’s multi-ethnic community, making it the nation’s undisputable, finest literary festival!
