The University of Arizona Press is gearing up for the Tucson Festival of Books (TFOB), to be held Saturday, March 12, and Sunday, March 13, on the University of Arizona campus in Tucson, Arizona!
TFOB is a major literary event, regularly drawing more than 400 authors from across the country and more than 135,000 attendees. Panels, readings, and other author activities present a fantastic opportunity to hear from talented authors on a wide range of subjects. Visit the TFOB website and the official panel grid to browse the offerings by participant or genre. There are also plenty of book and food vendors, plus lots of family and entertainment activities.
The Press will have a large booth on the mall, and we’ll be selling a wide selection of books at a discount! Make sure to come visit us at booth 238, across from the Modern Languages building. Below, find a list of author signings we’ll be hosting at our booth throughout the weekend of the festival. Plus, see a list of panels that our authors will be participating in. Staff members are moderating panels, as well. We are thrilled that so many of our authors are participating in this year’s Tucson Festival of Books!
