Miami Book Fair’s NEA Big Read program kicks off with a reading by two award-winning poets and essayists whose work ponders the wonders of nature and humanity: Ross Gay, author of The Book of Delights, which was named one of the Best books of 2019 by Lit Hub, The Washington Independent Review of Books, and more; and Aimee Nezhukumatathil, author of World of Wonders: In Praise of Fireflies, Whale Sharks, and Other Astonishments, which was named the 2020 Barnes & Noble Book of the Year.
Both authors will also virtually visit select Miami Dade College classrooms.
