If you’re looking for a literary escape, look no further because the first annual Life to Paper Book Festival is finally here. For the whole month of November, the space next to The Bookshop by Life to Paper blossoms with community activations for readers and creatives of all types.

A gem all its own, The Bookshop is quite literally a home away from home for book lovers. A cozy enclave tucked away in the historic neighborhood of Buena Vista, The Bookshop is a house filled with stories where books come to life. As a venue that has a passion for supporting local authors, publishers, artists and all the dreamers in between, the launch of the Life to Paper Book Festival is a seamless fit. There’s nothing quite like a local bookstore inviting Miami in, letting us put our feet up, and encouraging us to stay awhile.

From November 1st to 30th, you’ll be able to find programming, both in-person and online, to fit your schedule. In addition to the essential book signings, panels and author talks, you’ll be able to dive headfirst into dinner parties, high tea, happy hours, live music, brunches, workshops, open mics, movie nights, and so much more. That’s right, every single day, there will be an adventure to get lost in.

Founder and Chief Inspiring Officer, Tabitha Rose, has created a safe and innovative space for folks to come together to share in books and storytelling with the ultimate goal of opening hearts and minds. A Miami transplant, Tabitha has intentionally sewn her creative roots into The Magic City and is determined to bind people together. Everyone has a seat at the vivacious table she has worked to build and nurture. The Bookshop and festival are captivating manifestations of her wish for Miami and we all have the opportunity to call it our own.

Miami could never have enough community hubs and The Bookshop and Life to Paper Book Festival are exactly what the doctor ordered for fill our literary cups. You can find tickets and more details on the festival here.

And to celebrate with our readers, we’re giving away a free festival pass and Life to Paper Book Festival tote bag. Stay tuned to our Instagram account to enter to win.
