Sunday, November 15 @ 7 p.m. | Livestreamed
Join Miami Book Fair as we celebrate the opening of Miami Book Fair Online with acclaimed novelists Ann Patchett and Emma Straub, hosted by Tony Award-winning actress Julie White!
An intimate virtual event that will kick off eight fabulous days of outstanding authors, activists, artists, poets, and pundits, this very special night of fun and fundraising will set the tone for an annual book fair that’s become synonymous with literary excellence, social relevance, and the inherent power – and empowerment – found in the cultural arts.
Ann, Emma, and Julie will be streaming live as they discuss the joys and challenges of running a bookstore, the critical impact of literature, and the sense of community that can be discovered in book-loving spaces.
Each ticket grants access to the event stream and includes a signed copy of any one of Ann’s or Emma’s books, with half of all proceeds going directly toward funding Miami Book Fair programming. Reserve your spot today and be part of a one-of-a-kind happening that includes Q&A with Ann & Emma and a ‘Virtual Book Signing’ for top supporters.
There will also be special guests and great giveaways like a Friends Membership (‘Editor in Chief’ level, annual value $1,000).
This event is Free for our Friends of the Fair as a benefit of your membership. If you want to become a friend of the Fair, click here.
