Presenting the newest Tucson Festival of Books creature...

Festival Staff / July 9, 2013

...the adorable desert quail!

Over the last five years, the Festival has featured some of the most distinctive creatures of the Sonoran desert:

In 2009... we started out in style with the iconic gila monster.

In 2010... we flew high like a hummingbird.

In 2011... we stretched our limbs as a tarantula.

In 2012... we leaped ahead as a frog.

In 2013... we further transformed like a butterfly.

Now for the 2014 Festival, we're celebrating literacy and books as a family affair with the desert quail and her delightful chicks. What is your favorite festival creature so far? Visit our Facebook page and share your vote today!
