Whether you’re the parent of a child just learning her ABC’s or a teenager in love with the hottest fantasy series, Miami Book Fair has something for you. For more than three decades, the Fair has been committed to fostering a love of reading in children. Why? Because studies show what we all know – good readers become good students, lifelong learners, and great citizens.
Generation Genius gathers the Fair’s literacy and learning programs for children and teens and brings them all under one banner. All year long, Miami Book Fair’s Generation Genius programs, such as Read to Learn Books for Free and StoryArts, distributes thousands of free children’s books around Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
This downloadable PDF shows, day-by-day, all events, programs, and readings, including those in Children’s Alley, as well as suggested age ranges for each:
• Generation Genius school field trips bring nearly 10,000 schoolkids from all over Miami-Dade County to the Fair to meet their favorite authors (some leave with free books).
• Tweens and Teens will find a lineup of red-hot authors in fantasy, action, horror, and graphic novels.
• Mr. Wembly Wordsmith returns to his Storytorium in Children’s Alley with his tall-tale-spinners (authors!)
• There are pirates and dancers and storytellers and more at the Once Upon a Time Stage in Children’s Alley.
• Illustrate books, travel through space, and dig for fossils—it’s all happening in the pop-up FUN rooms in Children’s Alley.
