Former Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile made headlines this week when she revealed in her new book that the 2016 Democratic Party showed favoritism to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.

Now, at Miami Book Fair, you can hear Brazile discuss the controversy and “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-Ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House.” She’ll be in conversation with outspoken Republican strategist and political commentator Ana Navarro.

Suddenly, with old Democratic squabbles revived, “An Evening With Donna Brazile in Conversation with Ana Navarro” is a hot book fair ticket. Read Politico’s excerpt of Brazile’s book, and you’ll understand.

And though the speakers are members of opposing political parties, they share a common disdain for the current president.

The Nicaraguan-born Navarro has been extremely vocal about her opposition to President Trump’s administration and Tweets about it on a regular basis.

Brazile, too, has engaged the president via social media. In response to the news about the DNC, President Trump Tweeted that “This is real collusion and dishonesty.” Brazile took to social media to set the record straight.

The event is set for 8 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Chapman Conference Center on Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus, 300 NE Second Ave. Tickets are $15.

Brazile and Navarro aren’t the only political speakers on the schedule. The fair kicks off Nov. 12 with journalist Dan Rather and his book “What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism” and ends at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 19 with Sen. Al Franken and his memoir “Al Franken, Giant of the Senate.” Tickets to Rather’s event are $35; tickets to the Franken event are free with street fair admission. They go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Nov. 6.

Former vice president Joe Biden will also talk about his new book “Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose” at 7 p.m. Nov. 18 at the Adrienne Arsht Center. Tickets are $36, are on sale now and include a copy of the book. There will be shuttles running from the fair to the Arsht if you don’t want to move your car; find them at Second Avenue and Fifth Street.
