Watch the National Book Award Finalists and Winners at the Miami Book Fair
Live from the 2022 Miami Book Fair
The Miami Book Fair began as a two-day event in November 1984, when a small group of determined individuals—including educators from Miami Dade College, independent booksellers, and librarians—founded Miami Book Fair International. In the nearly 40 years since, Miami Book Fair has grown into one of the most significant cultural events in the region, the most comprehensively programmed book fair in the nation, and an internationally recognized model of excellence.
At this year’s Festival, watch the 2022 National Book Award longlisters, finalists, and winners, in an annual super-sized showcase of readings and conversation, moderated by Ruth Dickey, executive director of the National Book Foundation.
