George W. Bush to open book fair

Points 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 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 http://miamibookfair.com/.

Bush is not the first member of the former first family to appear at the fair. Daughter Jenna presented her book Ana's Story in 2007, and his sister Doro Bush Koch appeared at the fair in 2006 with her memoir My Father, My President.

The fair runs from Nov. 14-21 at Miami Dade College's Wolfson campus in downtown Miami.
