Renowned Ibero-American writers to be featured at Miami Book Fair

This year’s 30th edition of the Miami Book Fair International, produced and presented by The Center for Literature and Theatre @ Miami Dade College (MDC), will feature a diverse lineup of local and international Ibero-American writers and authors, including Cervantes Prize winner Jorge Edwards, Marcos Aguinis, Jorge Eduardo Benavides, Gioconda Belli and Esmeralda Santiago. The authors hail from countries such as Argentina, Chile, Peru, Nicaragua and Spain, among others.

The Fair’s Ibero-American program is a well-attended, annual component of the Book Fair, where authors and writers discuss their latest works as well as participate in book signings, readings, and oneon- one discussions.

As this year’s fair will celebrate the culture and literature of Spain, Latin American authors will be teamed up in some sessions with distinguished Spanish authors, such as J.J. Armas Marcelo, Juan Malpartida and Carmen Posadas. Other renowned Spanish authors featured at the Book Fair are Rosa Montero, José Ovejero and Lorenzo Silva, among many others.

The program will host exciting panel sessions on Miami’s digital cultural magazines, E-books, independent publishers, a look at Ibero-American literature from the past and present and conversations on contemporary Ibero-American theater.

 The 30th edition of the Book Fair, the nation’s finest and largest literary gathering, will take place Nov. 17-24 at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus, 300 NE Second Ave. in downtown Miami. The always-popular Street Fair runs Friday through Sunday, Nov. 22-24, with more than 200 exhibitors from around the country selling books in a festive atmosphere.
