VOYAGE MIA : Meet Amanda Keeley of EXILE Books in Little Haiti

Thanks for sharing your story with us Amanda. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.

Hi! A little about me… I am a visual artist, cultural curator, and all-around book nerd! I grew up here in sunny South Florida and never envisioned moving back. Life took me around the world. I settled in NYC, ran a non-profit artist’s bookstore called Printed Matter, worked for Yoko Ono’s studio, had some very awesome adventures. I decided to return to Miami around six years ago when I realized how much was changing and how many opportunities there were to steer this growth. In other words, New York is my baby… but Miami is my boo!
