Miami Book Fair

Please join author Laura Lee "White Lightning" Huttenbach and Robert "Raven" Kraft as they talk running, writing, and friendship at the Miami Book Fair. We'll be in room 3314 (Building 3, third floor). A book signing for RUNNING WITH RAVEN will immediately follow the session. More info is at

About the book: In Running with Raven, Laura Lee Huttenbach tells the incredible story of Robert “Raven” Kraft, a lonely outcast, who, in 1975, made a New Years’ resolution to run eight miles on South Beach every day. Over forty years, 125,000 miles, seven hurricanes, chronic back pain and several hospitalizations later, he hasn’t missed a single day. Huttenbach also tells the stories of the people whose lives Raven has touched – as well as a story of Miami, an urban history in which ordinary people are rescued from the margins.
