Miami Book Festival

November 21, 2016

I had a great time this weekend in Miami, attending the delightful Miami Book Festival with other longlisters (and winners!) of the National Book Award. We each read for about 5 minutes. Here’s a picture of me perched on the edge of the stage Saturday afternoon, getting ready to read, with many cool non-fiction writers:



Before my reading the wonderful Karan Mahajan brought me to a graffiti art area called Wynwood Wall and we were amazed by spray painted walls:


I was supposed to go to a party after that but I made a detour to South Beach, hanging out with the amazing Jonathan Rabb at the Clevelander:



After about 3 mojitos and many many performance artists I fell asleep at about 8pm.

Conclusion: I’m not cool enough for cool things like Miami, but I had a great time.

    “The Clevelander”..I had to laugh when I read that as was there once myself, like many years ago and I just remembered that “the music never stops in that place’..it’s worth seeing just once I agree:)

    Amazing art!

    Was this before or after Yale beat Harvard? Rabb must have been elated! I am sure that helped the mood.

    If you’re into street art, there’s a section of Oakland, along Telegraph between roughly 20th and 30th Streets, that has some amazing stuff.
