About the Festival

Festival Staff / July 29, 2019

A favorite among authors, the Tucson Festival of Books has hosted thousands of authors over the past two decades. Some of your favorites may include Any Tan, Dave Barry, Elmore Leonard, Mitch Albom, Billy Collins, Juan Felipe Herrera, Kwame Alexander, Brandon Hobson, J.A. Jance and Luis Urrea. For a full list of alumni authors click here.

Set on the beautiful University of Arizona campus, the festival is free to attend for everyone. From activities for children and teens (including a literary circus) to more than 300 author presentations from some of your favorites, there is so much to enjoy at the festival. The 2020 festival will be held on March 14th and 15th. We hope to see you there!
