Last year, George W. Bush headlined the Miami Book Fair International. While this year's edition offers no presidential names on the bill, another former commander-in-chief is preparing for a literary visit to Miami this Fall. The Coral Gables location of Books & Books will be hosting Bill Clinton. He'll stop by the storied book store on December 1st to promote his latest tome, Back to Work: Why We Need Smart Government for a Strong Economy.
The former prez will be discussing his new book, and then hold a signing open to a public. The catch is you must purchase a voucher in advance at any Books & Book location or online. The voucher means you'll receive a book the day of and a spot in the autograph line.
Clinton's latest book argues that the path to economic recovery lies not in a smaller government, but in a smarter and more engaged government.
