Readers’ Treat: Book Fest Celebrating Arizona Authors

Voracious readers and lovers of writing, come celebrate Arizona Authors at the All-Zona Book Festival, Sunday, October 18, from 9:00–3:00, at St. Francis Cabrini Parish Hall, 3201 E. Presidio Road, Tucson, AZ.  (Address is one block south and east of Fort Lowell and Country Club).

Co-sponsors for the event include Mostly Books, an Independent Book Store, Tucson, AZ. To read about special guests and the line-up of Arizona authors featured for this event, click on the secure link at the bottom of this post and for more information about the day’s schedule. There’ll be a full listing of the day’s activities and the highlighted authors.

Several years back, the Tucson Festival of Books started as an event featuring Southwest authors. TFOB has grown in popularity far beyond its original scope. We’re delighted to have so much national and international talent here for three days each spring, but the All-Zona Book Festival is taking us back to a celebration of the wonderful talent in our own state. One special benefit, of course, is that your dollars will stay in the community when you purchase books. Most important, the theme of this year’s festival emphasizes early childhood literacy and the importance of reading to and with young children. Meet our mayor, Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, who will be talking about early childhood literacy and signing his new book.

Admission is free to this special event. There will also be a silent auction and raffle.

And I will be signing my latest book, Another View: Stories of Loyalty, Love, & Remembrance from France. 

I hope to visit with lots of my friends and fellow readers this coming Sunday.
