Miami Book Fair International

Looking for a reason (an excuse, an anything) to a week or weekend even in Miami? Well, here it is!

An eight day literary event in Miami - with publishers and booksellers selling their books and authors talking about their new, upcoming and old books alike, Miami Book Fair International is something not too miss!

The first five days, Sunday through Thursday, see author events while the last weekend, Friday through Sunday is the street fair and, most pertinent to this blog perhaps, the days where (almost all) the YA authors will appear.

While the full schedule won't be up until November 1st, the 2012 list of Confirmed Authors is up!

And I'm planning a MBFI Review Feature of sorts leading up to the fair (which, barring some catastrophe, I should be attending).

Authors like Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (Saturday afternoon), Libba Bray (Saturday morning), Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian (Saturday afternoon), Laini Taylor (Sunday afternoon), Christopher Pike (Saturday morning), James Patterson (Sunday noon), Lemony Snicket (Monday, 12th) and more will be there!

Look for reviews of some of their books coming between this week and the weekend of the Street Fair and hopefully some tweets, pics from MBFI, itself!

Anyone else planning on attending Miami Book Fair International or have you in the past? I only have been able to once.
