For those of you who live in Arizona, next weekend there is an awesome book event in Tucson. The Tucson Festival of Books will be held March 13-14, 2010 at the University of Arizona campus.
Although this is only the second year of the event, the organizers have over 400 authors giving lectures, signing books, etc. Children’s book authors are well-represented, including a talk by Jon Scieszka. A number of local organizations are presenting child-friendly activities as well. Best of all, the event is free (well, except for all the books you are sure to bring home.)
