Come and join us to learn that St Augustine was not the founding site of Juan Ponce De Leon 500 years ago in 1513. It was the Biscayne Bay and Tequesta Miami that were named as the first discovered Native American settlement, Viva 500 Miami.

International Book Fair 2012

The Argentine Consulate brought a great selection of their authors. Great effort by the Consulate to promote Argentina’s wealth of literary talent. I also enjoyed talking with the Vermont College Of Fine Arts who were representing their student and professor published works on a hide variety of topics including essays on the importance of art critics to correlate values both financial and aesthetic.

International Book Fair 2012 at MDC
 Sunday was wet and windy at times but the children’s section was busy all day long, the students dressed as literary characters were everywhere bringing even wider smiles.  The Miami Book Fair International was presented by The Center for Literature and Theatre, MDC downtown campus Miami Nov 11 – 18 .  2013 will be the Fair’s 30th anniversary edition. If they just repeat this year’s format again it will be a great success.
