It’s the world’s most popular sport, and now South Florida is a favorite destination for fútbol/soccer aficionados from the United States and the world.

The book is based on photographer Alejandro Pagni’s images and is accompanied by essays by Argentine and soccer experts.

Join two journalists who between them have covered more than a dozen World Cups and a 6 Olympic Games to discuss a new collaboration, and a presentation of the coffee-table, luxurious book – “Eternal Glory” – documenting an exciting, exotic and thrilling World Cup, and a chat about sport, the state of soccer and future World Cups. 

Eduardo Biscayart and Keyvan Antonio Heydari, two Miami-based journalists, collaborated in the English and Spanish-language editions of Eternal Glory: Argentina’s Road to Victory in Qatar 2022 (Sean Eternos los Campeones: el Camino de Argentina Hacia la Victoria en Qatar 2022.) 

Also, a dialogue about sports idols, how the digital era has changed sports, culture of sport and how soccer has changed in the United States. Also, on the essence of sports storytelling and photos, and books as a different experience than digital content.

Now, South Florida has become a pilgrimage for fans of the world’s game. Voyagers from around the world travel to see matches, Inter Miami CF or idol Lionel Messi, and the upcoming 2024 Copa America final and 2026 World Cups will be staged in the area.

A book presentation and conversation about the world’s game, then and now. In English and Spanish. Books in both languages and signed photos will be available.

***This event will take place at the Books & Books in Coral Gables at 265 Aragon Ave. Books will be available for purchase at the event.***
