Miami Book Fair happening this week

miami_book_fair_posterWere I not in sunny California right now, what I wouldn’t give to be in another awesome, tropical place — the Sunshine State! The Miami Book Fair International is happening Nov. 8-15 at Miami Dade College in Miami, Fla., and check out this line-up:

• Sherman Alexie
• Margaret Atwood
• Roy Blount Jr.
• Robert Olen Butler
• Meg Cabot
• Alan Cheuse
• Susie Essman
• Mike Farrell
• Al Gore
• Dr. Sanjay Gupta
• Barbara Kingsolver
• Jonathan Lethem
• Peter Mayle
• Jacquelyn Mitchard
• Ralph Nader
• Todd Oldham
• Richard Powers
• Francine Prose
• Jeannette Walls
• Plus more than 300 other authors from around the world . . .

And OK — you had me at Meg Cabot. But with all those other awesome folks, too? Yeah, if it were feasible for me to say, be in Miami right now, it would take a pack of wolves surrounding the college to keep me away from this event!

Friday, Nov. 13 – Sunday, Nov. 15 is the Street Fair, where more than 250 publishers will exhibit and sell their work and authors will read from and discuss their books. Admission is free for everyone on Friday; ticket prices vary the other days of the fair. Check out the website for all that information!

If anyone is planning on going, I expect a full report — complete with photos. And say hi to Meg for me!
