Little Haiti Book Festival 2020

Over the past few weeks, we have been reimagining the ways in which we connect people to books and authors online. From author presentations, readings and discussions to online workshops, Miami Book Fair and its partners continue our shared mission to connect the literary community from home.

Announcing the Little Haiti Book Festival Online! Programmed in partnership with Sosyete Koukouy, as in years past, and in collaboration with Books & Books and Libreri Mapou, The Little Haiti Book Festival Online will feature authors from Haiti and the Haitian diaspora, panel discussions and performances, and storytelling and dance for children, too!

We are working on a schedule for various events that will take us through the last half of May, and all the way through June — we’ll celebrate Haitian Heritage Month, and Caribbean Heritage Month, too!


The Little Haiti Book Festival relies on the generous support of Miami-Dade County Cultural Affairs, the City of Miami and Commissioner Keon Hardemon, the Little Haiti Cultural Complex, The FIU Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center, the Green Family Foundation, the Haitian Consulate, HALO (Haitian American Leadership Organization), Haitian Women of Miami, SANT LA, Libreri Mapou Bookstore, and the Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance, among others.


The Little Haiti Book Festival, (formerly known as the Haitian-Caribbean Book Festival) which has been presented in part by Sosyete Koukouy of Miami Inc., for the past five years, has partnered with Miami Dade College’s Miami Book Fair, widely considered to be the best book festival in the United States, and continues to count on the support of Miami-Dade County Cultural Affairs, the City of Miami and Commissioner Keon Hardemon, the Little Haiti Cultural Complex, The FIU Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center, the Green Family Foundation, the Haitian Consulate, HALO (Haitian American Leadership Organization), Haitian Women of Miami, SANT LA, Libreri Mapou Bookstore, and the Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance, among others.
