Tucson Book Festival Author Pavilion
University of Arizona, Tucson
I will be available in the Authors Pavilion along with hundreds of other authors discussing our work and signing copies of Escape Points.
The 2016 Tucson Festival of Books will take place on Saturday, March 12 and Sunday, March 13 on the beautiful University of Arizona campus. Admission and parking are free.
The Tucson Festival of Books is located on the University of Arizona Mall – along East University Boulevard, stretching from Old Main to east of Cherry Avenue – and in several nearby buildings. For such a large event, the location is relatively compact.
Free public parking is typically available in the University’s surface lots and in six garages: Cherry Avenue, Highland Avenue, Main Gate, Park Avenue, Sixth Street and Tyndall Avenue (the Second Street Parking Garage is not available for the public).
Because the University will be on spring break, Festival participants and spectators won’t be competing with students for parking. Free public wi-fi is available on the campus.The Festival offers two full food courts along with snack vendors.
Net proceeds from the Festival – from the support of our sponsors, exhibitors, and Friends of the Festival – go to fund critical literacy programs in Southern Arizona.
