4th ANNUAL TUCSON FESTIVAL OF BOOKS

The literary-centric mega event will bring 400 to 450 authors and 255 exhibitors' tents and booths to the University of Arizona Mall and adjacent lecture halls and meeting rooms March 10-11. A crowd of 100,000 people is expected during the inclusive, family-friendly community celebration.

The author committee has made special efforts to incorporate authors and panels that reflect on the people, culture and politics of the Grand Canyon State over the past century and beyond.

The 2012 edition includes several noted authors who are new to the festival such as Pulitzer Prize-winner Richard Russo and "The Perfect Storm" author Sebastian Junger (see related story). Authors popular at past festivals are returning, such as children's author Jon Scieszka; Larry McMurtry, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Lonesome Dove"; Academy Award-winning writer Diana Ossana; and mystery writer J. A. Jance, the unofficial first lady of the festival.

• When: 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. March 10-11.

• Where: University of Arizona campus. Attendance and parking are free.

• What: About 450 authors, book discussions, workshops, literary activities for the entire family - and food.

• Sponsors: The UA and the Arizona Daily Star. University of Arizona Medical Center is the presenting sponsor. Net proceeds will promote literacy in Southern Arizona through the Tucson Festival of Books Foundation, a nonprofit organization.

Jon good for you passing along the information about the 4th ANNUAL TUCSON FESTIVAL OF BOOKS!  Books are important.  Something about actually holding a book in your hand while reading can not be replaced by our computer screens or IPads.  Good Localism!
