Literary Committee / August 1, 2016
The Tucson Festival of Books is known for unique panels, record-breaking crowds and high-volume book sales that entice best-selling authors to attend the Festival each March. We feature authors and books in two programs - Presenting Stages and Author Pavilions.
The Literary Committee is responsible for scheduling all book related programming on Presenting Stages (by invitation only).
Self-published authors are welcome to participate in one of four Author Pavilions (adult fiction / adult nonfiction / children's books / YA titles).
Open by invitation of the Literary Committee only
Authors and publicists with books that meet the following criteria are eligible for consideration:
Many genres and topics are featured on presenting stages:
Books are stocked and sold through our official bookseller, the University of Arizona BookStores, a New York Times-reporting store.
Authors and publicists that meet the criteria above may submit their book(s) for consideration through this link. Due to high volume, we will not be able to consider or respond to submissions that clearly do not meet our criteria.
If you are unsure whether a book meets our criteria, please email book information through this link.
If you are a reader who would like to suggest a favorite author or book, please send us the author name, book title and your comments through this link. We welcome your input!
