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 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 Miguel Parga 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 Parga at the BookBlastPro booth where they will have the opportunity to learn about him and his educational book entitled, 10 Lessons They Won’t Teach You in Film School. They may even witness the filming of his interview, and will have a chance for a personal; book signing!
Miguel Parga presents 10 Lessons They Won’t Teach You in Film School, a book that birthed from the author’s obsession with film, storytelling, and everything fine and wise that can be produced by recording scantily covered men and women with a movie camera. Parga points out that while schools teach the process of doing the proper filming, surviving in the business is something that is obtained through a series of experiences. And in this book, he shares some essential components in the formation of an artist. 10 Lessons They Won’t Teach You in Film School is a part inspirational and part instructional, it will draw interests from those that share the same field as the author as well as those that are only beginning to take the journey in film schools.
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!
