2018 Presenting Author Schedule

Festival Staff / January 22, 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Tucson Festival of Books event schedule! We are excited about this year's presenting authors and have placed the schedule into a compact, color-coded grid that you may use to organize your visit to the Festival.

Click the title of an event to obtain detailed information about that event including a short description, the moderator and details on each panelist. The schedule is subject to change and will be updated as new information is made available. Remember that a printed version of this information will be available in the Arizona Daily Star on Sunday, March 4, 2018, the weekend before the festival.

Each event on this grid has a star next to it. Click a star to bookmark an event. Click it again to remove the bookmark. When you are finished, you can view your bookmarked events in a printer-ready format here.

Don't forget to check out our other Entertainment and Author Activities to round out your schedule.

Event venues designated with ALD in the description have amplified sound and assistive listening devices are available to request here.
