Join Miami Book Fair as we celebrate the opening of Miami Book Fair Online with acclaimed novelists Ann Patchett and Emma Straub, hosted by Tony Award-winning actress Julie White!
An intimate virtual event that will kick off eight fabulous days of outstanding authors, activists, artists, poets, and pundits, this very special night of fun and fundraising will set the tone for an annual book fair that’s become synonymous with literary excellence, social relevance, and the inherent power – and empowerment – found in the cultural arts.
Ann, Emma, and Julie will be streaming live as they discuss the joys and pathos of writing, the critical importance and impact of literature, and the sense of community and support that can be discovered in book-loving spaces.
Each ticket purchased grants access to the event stream and includes the selection of a signed copy of any one of Ann’s or Emma’s books, with half of all proceeds going directly toward funding Miami Book Fair programming. Reserve your spot today and be a part of a one-of-a-kind happening that recognizes and supports accessibility to the extraordinary magic of literature! There will also be special guests and great giveaways like a friends membership (Editor in Chief level Friends membership, annual value $1,000).
This event is Free for our Friends of the Fair as a benefit of your membership. If you want to become a friend of the Fair, click here.
