Tucson Festival of Books

2023 Presenting Author Schedule

Welcome to the 2023 Tucson Festival of Books event schedule! We are excited about this year's presenting authors and have placed the schedule into a compact, color-coded grid that you may use to organize your visit to the Festival.

Click the title of an event to obtain detailed information about that event including a short description, the moderator and details on each panelist. The schedule is subject to change and will be updated as new information is made available. Remember that a printed version of this information will be available in the Arizona Daily Star on Sunday, February 26, the weekend before the festival.

Each event on this grid has a star next to it. Click a star to bookmark an event. Click it again to remove the bookmark. When you are finished, you can view your bookmarked events in a printer-ready format here. Bookmarking an event does not mean you have completed a free advance booking.

Events offering free advance booking are identified with a small ticket icon in the upper right corner. Friends of the Festival at $60.00 and above, as well as sponsors, will have access to create free advance bookings for events at noon on February 22, 2023. Everyone else will have access to create free advance bookings at noon on February 27, 2023. The free advance booking period ends on Friday, March 3.
