Tucson Festival of Books this weekend

In case you don't already know, the Tucson Festival of Books ( )will be this weekend. It will be held at the University of Arizona Campus from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm on Saturday March 10th, and Sunday March 11th. If you have any time at all, swing on down to Tucson and enjoy the festivities. Each year it has grown and grown and this year promises to be as much fun as ever.

Not only can you expect LOTS of books and fun activities for the whole family, you can also listen to some amazing authors and illustrators talk about their craft and inspirations. It is also a great opportunity to learn about what is going on in publishing right now. Here are just a few of the amazing presenters you will be able to look forward to:

Kadir Nelson
James Owen
R.L. Stine
David Diaz
Jack Gantos
Jon Sciescka
Mac Barnett
Adam Rex

How often do we get the opportunity here in Arizona so see so many amazing authors and illustrators all in one place in our own backyard? I an so looking forward to heading down to Tucson this weekend. I'll be listening to several of the panels and will also be at the SCBWI-AZ booth throughout the weekend. Come on by and say hi!

Happy Drawing to all.
