From open contests to the open-air Book Fair, Knight Foundation has invested more than $86 million over the past six years to make the arts general in South Florida.


welcome to the 31st miami book fair! Great communities gather around good books. That’s why Miami Book Fair International is the largest literary event in the country and why we have such generous support from Miami’s ever-growing community of readers, sponsors and friends. We’re particularly pleased to announce a significant new partnership between John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Center for Literature and Theatre at Miami Dade College to make Miami a year-round, international destination for writers and readers. At this year’s Fair, you will experience Knight Foundation’s extraordinary commitment in programs and partnerships throughout the week: • daily live-streaming and national event coverage by PBS • a major new section of the Fair dedicated to local literary and other artistic talent at “The Swamp” • an international children’s theatre festival, Play Time!, produced by Teatro Prometeo • a roundtable on the Amazon Effect and profound changes in publishing and literary culture live-streamed throughout the country

During the Week (pages 4-9) • a new partnership with the National Book Foundation making Miami the only gathering outside New York for the 2014 National Book Awards Winners and Finalists. • a new partnership with the Poetry Foundation, helping to make this year’s Fair one of the country’s largest and most prominent gathering of poets.

Miami Writers Institute (page 11)

• an expanded array of independent publishers and artistmade books during Street Fair weekend.

The Swamp

The energy and funding commitment of Knight Foundation continues after the Fair, when The Center will embark on a research and strategic planning process to truly gauge what our community wants and needs from a literary arts organization. A study that will suggest ways we can best serve a nationwide audience, and how, using live-streaming and other technologies, The Center and the Fair can transcend their physical location.

The Kitchen

The Fair is also proud to announce new partnerships with: • the Ford Foundation, supporting “The Fire This Time,” an extraordinary remembrance tribute to James Baldwin on the 90th anniversary of his birth • the Rockefeller Foundation, supporting “Critics in the Cloud,” the first-ever convening of the leading online critics of books and culture in the U.S. With this new support, combined with the generosity of foundations, corporate, and individuals — including The Miami Foundation, American Airlines, and others — Miami will continue to be a book-lover's dream. Come share the dream. Support the Fair!

sunday / November 16, 2014 INAUGURAL EVENT: MDC Live Arts and Miami Book Fair International present

Three Acts, Two Dancers and One Radio Host: Ira Glass, Monica Bill Barnes, and Anna Bass Olympia Theater at the Gusman 5 p.m. Center for the Performing Arts (Flagler Street and 2nd Ave.) Tickets $35-$55 ($10 MDC Students with ID) For tickets, visit mdclivearts.org Dance and radio — two art forms that, as This American Life radio host Ira Glass puts it, “have no business being together.” And yet, Glass and dance choreographer Monica Bill Barnes felt that their work shared a sensibility, even though hers includes no talking and his no physical movement. Their collaboration is a show that includes radio interviews restaged as dance pieces, plus stories from the lives of each of the performers. The result is a funny, lively, and surprisingly emotional evening that brought the house down during its first test run at Carnegie Hall. The New York Times calls the show, which includes dancer Anna Bass, “. . . unapologetically human and refreshingly relatable . . .” Glass adds, “People who like This American Life will probably like this, because it’s just like the radio show, um, if you picture dancing during all the stories.”

Olson, tell the fascinating story of the five-year struggle to win the right for gays to marry.

Patricia Cornwell tells aspiring authors, “Start writing. And don’t take no for an answer.” Cornwell began her career as a journalist, receiving widespread praise for her series of articles on prostitution and crime. Next came a job at a medical examiner’s office — a post she would later bestow upon her fictional character, Dr. Kay Scarpetta. In the decades since, Scarpetta, along with her tech-savvy niece Lucy and fellow investigator Pete Marino, have grown into an international phenomenon. Cornwell’s books have sold some 100 million copies in thirty-six languages in over 120 countries, including twenty-six New York Times bestsellers. In Flesh and Blood (HarperCollins; $28.99), the twenty-second offering in the Scarpetta series, the master forensic investigator finds herself in the unsettling pursuit of a serial sniper who leaves no incriminating evidence, except fragments of copper.

6 p.m.

Jai-Alai Magazine reading; Science and Art: Transformative Experiences in the Everglades; and live music by Kazoots (see pages 13-15) sponsored by

Parenting is one of many topics Dave Barry treats to his humorous take on life. Though he wants to make it clear that he is serious about the title to his new book, You Can Date Boys When You’re Forty (Putnam; $26.95). In fact, he’s noted the date his daughter will reach that milestone — February 24, 2040. Until then, he writes, “I intend to monitor her closely, even if I am deceased.” In Sandra Tsing Loh’s memoir, The Madwoman in the Volvo: My Year of Raging Hormones (Norton $25.95), she tells the moving and laugh-out-loud tale of her journey through “the change.” This is not your grandmother’s menopause story. Join these two good friends of a certain age as they take a look at their futures and reach the upbeat conclusion: it does get better.

An Evening With Nicholas D. Kristof Chapman (Bldg. 3, 2nd Floor) Tickets $15

7 p.m. / Koubek Theater S.W. 27th Avenue and 2nd Street. Free admission.

8 p.m.

Nicholas D. Kristof’s writing has effected change on a global scale. After Bill and Melinda Gates read an article Kristof wrote about infant mortality, it spurred them to direct their philanthropic aims towards solving world poverty. President Bill Clinton said of Kristof, “There is no one in journalism . . . who has done anything like the work he has done to figure out how poor people are actually living around the world, and what their potential is . . .” In A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity (Knopf; $27.95), the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist presents a sweeping tapestry of people who are making the world a better place, and a guide to the ways that we can do the same. Kristof identifies successful local and global initiatives, and shares stories from the frontlines of social progress. A Path Appears offers practical, results-driven advice on how best each of us can give, and reveals the lasting benefits we gain in return.

6 p.m.

sponsored by

Educated as a scientist, Barbara Ehrenreich is an author, journalist, activist, and advocate for social justice. Her previous books include timely examinations of social inequality, such as This Land is Their Land and Nickel and Dimed. But there was one period of Ehrenreich’s life she describes as “so strange, so cataclysmic, that I never in all the intervening years wrote or spoke about it, if only because I was afraid of being judged insane.” Following her recovery from breast cancer, Ehrenreich vowed to put those experiences in context and try to understand what had happened. The result is Living With a Wild God: An Unbeliever’s Search for the Truth About Everything (Grand Central Publishing; $26.00), which Ehrenreich describes as “a sort of philosophical memoir or . . . a metaphysical thriller.” Join one of today’s most important thinkers in her journey for the truth.

and in Spanish 7 p.m. / Koubek Theater S.W. 27th Avenue and 2nd Street. Free admission. The Life, Work, and Legacy of Juan Ramón Jiménez (Spain) and Platero y yo, presented by Antonio Fernández Almanza, president of The Juan Ramón Jiménez Foundation, with authors Daisy Valls and Carlos Pintado.

An Evening With Chuck Todd Chapman (Bldg. 3, 2nd Floor) Tickets $15

8 p.m.

Chuck Todd is the Chief White House Correspondent and Political Director of NBC News, and host of Meet the Press. He also serves as NBC News’ on-air political analyst for NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, Today, and the MSNBC programs Morning Joe and Hardball with Chris Matthews. Todd brings his political savvy to bear in his latest book, The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House (Little, Brown & Company; $29.00). If President Obama came to the White House thinking he could change the political culture, he soon discovered just how difficult it was to swim upstream against insiders, partisans, and old-guard networks allied to undermine his agenda — including members of his own party. In The Stranger, Chuck Todd draws upon his unprecedented inner-circle sources to create a gripping account of Obama’s White House tenure.

6 p.m.

Larry McMurtry met Diana Ossana at a catfish restaurant in Tucson, Arizona, where she was working at a law firm and he was recovering from heart surgery. McMurtry was already an award-winning novelist and essayist, whose work included The Last Picture Show, Terms of Endearment, and Lonesome Dove, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize. Their friendship has led to a tremendously successful writing partnership, including the novels Pretty Boy Floyd, and Zeke and Ned. When Ossana read the short story “Brokeback Mountain” in the New Yorker, she and McMurtry bought the rights and co-wrote the Oscar and Golden Globe-winning screenplay adaptation. In The Last Kind Words Saloon (Liveright; $24.95), McMurtry once again channels the American dreams and fables that fueled his imagination as a youth. McMurtry traces the rich and varied friendship of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday, from Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show to the famed gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Robert Weil, W.W. Norton’s editor-in-chief and publishing director of Norton’s Liveright & Company imprint, will join in conversation.

Andruetto

8 p.m.

John Updike wrote of Joyce Carol Oates, “. . . if the phrase ‘woman of letters’ existed, she would be . . . entitled to it.” Oates’s first collection of short stories was published in 1963. She has gone on to write more than seventy books in a remarkable variety of genres, including novels, short story collections, nonfiction, novellas, plays, poetry collections, children’s and young adult books, and has edited many anthologies of short stories and essays. Her work includes some of the most enduring fiction of our time, including We Were the Mulvaneys, Blonde, and the New York Times bestseller The Falls. Her latest story collection, Lovely, Dark, Deep (HarperCollins; $25.99), presents thirteen stories that map the eerie darkness within us all. Insightful, disturbing, imaginative, and breathtaking in their lyrical precision, the stories display Joyce Carol Oates’s ability to make visceral the terror, hurt, and uncertainty that lurks at the edges of ordinary lives.

Pocos escritores alcanzan la universalidad en vida y uno de ellos ha sido el colombiano Gabriel García Márquez. Para homenajear al ganador del Premio Nobel de Literatura 1982, dos compatriotas suyos – el escritor Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza y el periodista Enrique Córdoba– compartirán con el público un retrato de la personalidad y la obra del autor de Cien años de soledad.

Toda buena novela es una adivinanza del mundo.

Lectura dramatizada de tres textos de García Márquez –“Monólogo de Isabel viendo llover en Macondo”, “El ahogado más hermoso del mundo” y Diatriba de amor contra un hombre sentado– a cargo de un grupo de actores egresados de Prometeo. Dirección: Beatriz J. Rizk.

(Gabriel García Márquez, entrevista en la Revista Nacional de Cultura, Caracas, 1968.)
