2017 Presenting Author Schedule

Festival Staff / January 15, 2017

Welcome to the 2017 Tucson Festival of Books event grid. 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.

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.
