Friends Have Heart

We’re proud of our past. Over the course of 35 years, Miami Book Fair has become the most prestigious festival of its kind in the nation, and the heart of literary culture in South Florida.

What began as the passion project of a few, has grown into a home for many – a vibrant community of writers and readers brought together by shared passions for literature and the arts, and a commitment to making a lasting impact on our city.

Friends leave a legacy by supporting the country’s best book fair, a centerpiece of cultural Miami.

Join a group of forward-thinking supporters of the arts today.

With your help, we’ll make a magnificent event even better.
