MIAMI – There is no rest for Bernie Sanders. He is traveling around the country to promote "Our Revolution: A Future To Believe In" -- a new book about his days in the campaign trail. 

More than 3,000 packed a gym at North Central College in Chicago on Friday night. And hundreds were expected to turnout to see him at Miami-Dade College Wolfson Campus, 300 NW Second Ave., in downtown Miami on Saturday night. 

Sanders will be a guest of honor at the Miami Book Fair International, being held this week at the urban college campus. Although the 600 tickets for Sanders' event at the college's Chapman Conference Center in building 3 were gone, every event has a standby line. 

Among the other guests of the fair this year were The Daily Show's Trevor Noah, Fusion's Jorge Ramos, James Carville, Alan Cumming, Padma Lakshmi, Patti Smith and Art Spiegelman.

The street fair, which will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and ends on Sunday, requires an admission of $8 for adults and $5 for teens. For more information, check out the Miami Herald's Book Editor's quick guide and visit the event's website
