  • The Miami Book Fair 2010: A Visit From the Good Squad

    The lineup for the 27th Miami Book Fair International is as impressive as any I’ve seen. Catering to readers with both catholic and provincial tastes in literature, the Book Fair is also the rare event that would present the hawkish ex-president George W. Bush and the pacifistic punk icon Patti Smith on the same stage, though regrettably not at the same time. But the big names are not confined to former residents of the White House and CBGB. Many top fiction and nonfiction writers will appear at the fair, which will begin this Sunday (Nov. 14), continue during the week the “An Evening With … ” series and conclude with a weekend’s street fair and lengthy slate of author readings and autograph sessions, all at Miami-Dade College’s Wolfson Campus. For the full schedule of events, visit Miamibookfair.com. My recommendations follow.
