Next weekend, I’ll be traveling from my secret HQ in Orlando down to Miami Book Fair International to see and talk to some of my favorite writers.

The list of confirmed authors is both long and impressive (try to overlook the existence of Bill O’Reilly on this list).  This is the largest congregation of literary talent outside of, perhaps, AWP, and I am proud to say that it happens in Florida.  The variety of authors is also really amazingly fun.

I am sorely disappointed that I cannot be there for the Junot Diaz, Sandra Cisneros, and Lemony Snicket readings, which are scheduled for earlier in the week.

Miami Book Fair International lasts from November 11-18th, at the Wolfson campus of Miami Dade College.  If you live in South Florida and love writing, you owe it to yourself to make the trip.
