The Swamp @ Miami Book Fair International

Via Miami Book Fair International Inc.

Goal

To raise the profile of Florida authors by creating a pop-up lounge at the Book Fair that features writers whose works explore the beauty, contradictions, uniqueness and weirdness of life in the Sunshine State

To raise the profile of Florida authors, the book fair will create a pop-up lounge called the Swamp that features regional writers exploring the beauty, contradictions and weirdness of life in the Sunshine State. The fair will invite other literary and arts groups to curate individual nights, assuring that each evening is an event reflecting the personalities that animate the local cultural scene. The Swamp will honor and celebrate Florida while providing a venue for local writers and lovers of literature to come together.

The 30-year-old Miami Book Fair International, the largest and most comprehensive book festival in the United States, promotes reading and community engagement, bringing more than 200,000 people to the Miami Dade College in downtown Miami every year.
