The Miami Book Fair brought in authors and book lovers from around the world. Held at the Miami Dade College, the event, in its 32nd year, ran Nov. 15 to 22.

It included book talks, special programs, a Children’s Alley and the popular street fair. More than 250 publishers and booksellers exhibited and sold their books. Whether a person was looking for a book on astrology or a comic book for their nephew, there was something perfect to buy, and many books were as low as $5 or even $1.

The IberoAmerican Program, which included talks by more than 80 Spanish-speaking authors from around the world, was just one IMG_7302program focused on diversity. Foodies appreciated the cooking demonstrations in Miami Culinary Institute’s state-of-the art Wine Theatre. There was even live entertainment to watch.

C-SPAN was among the journalists present to document the festivities. Guests could see them broadcast from beneath a tent just like the other long line of book vendors at the book fair.
