The Olympics aren't the only place you'll find a "Dream Team." The 2014 Tucson Festival of Books has one its own. This year's field of nearly 450 authors and presenters includes some of the biggest names in adult, teen and children's literature. They'll appear Saturday, March 15th and Sunday, March 16th on the University of Arizona campus.

The Festival's 2014 lineup includes mega-best-selling writer Scott Turow (his newest book is "Identical"), Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo ("Elsewhere"), mystery master Craig Johnson (whose work spawned TV's "Longmire" series), and former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor ("Out of Order").

The field of presenters includes authors, illustrators, literary agents and scientists and crosses every literary genre from mystery to paranormal romance, nonfiction to science fiction, biography to graphic novel. Presentations are followed by book signings at nearby locations. There are also book signings throughout the weekend at the Author's Pavilion and at exhibitor booths.

Other stars of the Festival's Dream Team include:

  • Matt de la Pena ("The Living")
  • Jared Diamond ("The World Until Yesterday")
  • Rebecca Eaton ("Making Masterpiece")
  • Cornelia Funke ("Fearless")
  • Alice Hoffman ("The Museum of Extraordinary Things")
