Festival Staff / September 1, 2019
Our 2019 Founder's Award winner, Luis Alberto Urrea, has never missed a festival! Having met some of his literary heroes right here in Tucson, Urrea takes pride in having become a festival favorite. An amazing writer, Urrea is also an engaging speaker. We are so happy to welcome him back for his 12th year at the festival. Learn more about Urrea at his website, or order his books online through the UA Bookstore and learn why festival goers love that he comes back every year.
