Historical Fiction at Its Best
Two of today's best fiction writers, Lisa See and Luis Alberto Urrea, have received the Tucson Festival of Books Founders Award. Both are here with recent bestsellers exploring their roots. See explores the role of women in long-ago China. Urrea introduces us to a character inspired by his mother and her unique role during World War II. Both stories come from the heart and from the home.
