Third Annual Haitian Caribbean Book Fair in Little Haiti

During the last week of May on 23 & 24, Haitian families turned out for the third annual Haitian Caribbean Book Fair in the Little Haiti neighborhood of Miami under sponsorship of Sosyete Koukouy. Sosyete Koukouy of Miami is a group dedicated to preserving the Haitian culture in the United States. The fair will exhibit over 7,000 books written in French, Creole, English, and Spanish. The day-long festival includes workshops, Caribbean food and puppet shows. The main motto of the fair is to promote and develop book reading habits, especially among the young people and hold on to own culture as the neighborhood becomes gentrified. The readers will have the opportunity to interact with their favorite authors and the authors will have direct feedbacks from their readers. Admission is free.
