About Friends of Miami Book Fair

Miami Book Fair is the beating heart of literary culture in South Florida and an international phenomenon that has deepened the life-changing impact Miami Dade College has made on more than two million students, their families, and the community at large.

This year, Miami Book Fair will be a hybrid experience offering virtual and in-person author sessions and events. Your support – in light of the struggles wrought by the pandemic – will make its biggest and most meaningful difference yet, as we continue to bring Miami Book Fair FREE to the community. By supporting what’s become the country’s best book fair and a centerpiece of cultural Miami, our Friends gift us all with an invaluable lasting legacy.

The support of our Friends will help us continue to bring you the authors and programs you love – not just for eight magical days in November, but throughout the entire year!
