Whether it's the gentle crack in the spine of a brand new book or the weathered pages of an early edition of a classic, book lovers know the feeling of starting a new read. With the impending arrival of the 30th anniversary of Miami Book Fair International, it'll be a complete literary free for all.
Hundreds of authors and artists will be hosting events, book talks and panels on a multitude of topics, from the first openly gay character in the "Archie" comic book series to Bill O'Reilly's new book "Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot."
The highly anticipated event of this year's fair is the appearance by author Tom Wolfe, known for his works "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test," "The Right Stuff" and "The Bonfire of the Vanities." After an eight-year hiatus, he's returning to the literary scene with his Miami-centric book, "Back to Blood." The documentary of the creation of the book will also be screened at the fair.
