11th Annual Tucson Festival of Books

March 2-3, 2019 — We would love to see you at the eleventh annual Tucson Festival of Books! The festival is open from 9:30am to 5:30pm on The University of Arizona campus , and it will feature a wide and exciting variety of exhibits, author panels, book signings, vendors, and more. As a non-profit event, the Tucson Festival of Books uses proceeds to improve literacy efforts in Arizona. For many years the festival has had an attendance of over 100,000 literature lovers, making it one of the largest book festivals in the United States.

Make sure to stop by the University of Arizona Press booth to learn more about the books we’ve published, as well as authors who have published with the Press who are attending the festival this year. These authors include Ilan Stavans, Pat Mora, Gary Stuart, and Stephen Strom.

More information on this upcoming event will be available soon, so be sure to check this event page as well as the Tucson Festival of Books website for updates. The official list of invited authors will be live by late November.

Here are some highlights from last year’s festival!
