Thousands of South Florida schoolchildren will help kick off the Street Fair, making the trip downtown Friday to hear authors and participate in Children’s Alley activities, including theater, arts-and-crafts, storytelling and readings by children’s book authors. Comics and graphic novels are once again featured, with the school of comics on Friday and a section just for kids and teens, as well as presentations over the weekend by renowned graphic novelists and illustrators. During Street Fair weekend, more than 250 publishers and booksellers exhibit and sell books, with special features like the antiquarians, who showcase signed first editions, original manuscripts and other collectibles. You can now download the entire 2014 Fairgoer’s Guide as a PDF document. Note that all Streets surrounding the College will be closed while the Book Fair is in progress. Streets will close Sunday, Nov 16th and reopen Monday, Nov 24th. #MBFI2014 @MiamiBookFair
