USF SI at the 2010 Miami Book Fair International

 

USF SI’s East Coast Coordinator Maria Treadwell and Communication and Information Officer Jessica Voss attended the 2010 Miami Book Fair International this past weekend. USF SI’s  booth was a hit this year at the fair. The  interest in our programs by fair goers was very high. Many LIS adjuncts, alumni, and current students were excited to see our presence at the fair and stopped by to catch up with the staff. Over 75 prospective students were anxious to stop and get information on our master’s program.

The Street Fair included the Festival of Authors, with more than 350 authors reading and discussing their work and the more than 250 publishers and booksellers exhibits. Thousands of South Florida schoolchildren kicked off the Street Fair, making the trip downtown Friday to hear authors and participate in Children’s Alley activities. The street fair was full of surprises with performers on stilts and mariachis singing. Here are a few pictures we captured. To view more photos from the fair click here.
