Tucson Festival of Books

The Tuscon Festival of Books has just completed it's 7th annual event.  I have been to 5 of the 7 years and I just love how this festival is evolving including getting more authors from around the world!  

More about the festival shortly, first I want to thank the children's authors who come to town and do school/classroom visits.  My school librarian invited Diane White, to talk about her newest book Blue on Blue.  She talked about how authors write and the publishing process and ended with reading her book.

Sunday, 11:30 am Session


After volunteering from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm  I was ready to walk around the tents!  It was a beautiful 78 degrees but a little windy as you will see in a couple pictures.
