We are looking forward to the Miami Book Fair International, just about a month away. Hundreds of authors and thousands of visitors will attend a full week of book events from November 13th -20th. We’ll be exhibiting at the Street Fair November 18th – 20th. It’s a great event with half a dozen blocks of downtown Miami shutdown to celebrate nothing but books.

One of the things that makes the fair such fun is that organizers plan events throughout the year leading up to the November celebration. Here’s one we can all participate in.

The Book Fair and TV station WLRN invite you to Tell Your Story in Six Words. The only rule is that the story must be about South Florida. Share your story on the WLRN site or with the hashtag #sixwordMiami on Facebook or Twitter. We’d love to have you share it in the comments below as well.

If you’re in the Miami area on Monday, October 24th, stop by the Book Fair’s First Draft: A Literary Social at Books & Books on Biscayne Boulevard to work on your story and enjoy your first drink on the house.

Here’s our story:
