George W. Bush is ready for his book fair debut.
The 43rd president of the United States will open the 27th edition of Miami Book Fair International at 4 p.m. Nov. 14 to speak about his upcoming memoir, Decision Points (Crown, $35).
Bush's appearance "speaks to the prestige we've been able to garner all these years," said Alina Interián, executive director of the Florida Center for the Literary Arts. ". . . It's quite timely so soon after the elections."
Tickets cost $40 and include an autographed copy of the book, which is scheduled for release on Nov. 9 and reportedly covers the Bush presidency from the 2000 election through the financial crisis.
Tickets are scheduled to go on sale at noon Nov. 8 at www.miamibookfair.com.
