Tucson Festival of Books

Elizabeth Bernays (she/her)

Linda Hitchcock

Elizabeth grew up in Australia, became a British Government Scientist in London, and then a Professor of Entomology at the University of California Berkeley.  From there she was appointed Regents' Professor at the University of Arizona where she also obtained an MFA in Creative Writing.  She has published fifty nonfiction stories in literary magazines (four of which won awards), eight poems,  and her book, "Six Legs Walking," won the 2020  Arizona/New Mexico Book Award for memoir. Her new book, “Across the Divide” was published in May 2023.

Over 215 authors self-nominated and submitted a book for review for our Reimagined Indie Author Experience.  Teams of genre judges read every book which resulted in the following Indie Authors being invited to participate on a Presenting Author Panel during the 2024 Tucson Festival of Books. Congratulations to all!

Scheduled events:
Indie Authors - Adult Fiction and Nonfiction
Journeys Out of Pain
Today we will hear three tales of changes caused by grief and pain in very different settings: second-chance love after loss, coping with pain and violence through wildly disparate professions, and finding new joy in a parental relationship after a major loss.
