Considered to be the largest literary event in the nation, the Miami Book Fair International is a celebration of scribes and their prose. The multiple-day event features a Festival of Authors, where 450 writers read and discuss their work as well as an Evenings With series, where well-known authors from the United States and around the world engage in post-reading Q&A sessions. The Street Fair portion of the literary affair gives attendees the opportunity to purchase rare books, foreign prints, comics and original manuscripts or get autographs and autographed materials. The Children's Alley offers classes in specific genres as well as theatrical performances and educational games. Special cooking demonstrations called Twilight Tastings and The Kitchen feature complimentary cocktails and culinary creations.
