“ I thought of all the colors and beauty that make Miami unique and of the power of books to elevate our minds and lift our spirits. This poster design represents, to me, the comfort of knowing that even in the direst circumstances, life will always yield unforgettable opportunities to feel joy,” said Lucia del Carmen Rivera Alvarez, visual artist and graphic designer who designed this year’s poster.

Catch live presentations from some of the hottest authors for kids and young adults, with readings by Michael Buckley, Jason Segel, Kiersten White, Gene Yang, Peter Lerangis, Nathan Hale, Kelly Barnhill, Ibi Zoboi and many more!

Reading, writing, storytelling, art, and music — they all lead to discovery and a life-long love of books.

Once again, The Fair will bring more than 9,000 schoolchildren on school buses to the Fair so they can meet their favorite authors and receive FREE books!

The children’s stage will host storytelling and a myriad of performances sure to delight and engage kids of all ages.

We are honored to once again partner up with Miami Book Fair to highlight their awesome young adults authors and books featured in this year’s edition!
