Zona Politics: Tucson Festival of Books Extravaganza!

Posted By on Fri, Mar 6, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Zona Politics Eps.20 from Zona Politics with Jim Nintzel on Vimeo.


We're excited to announce a brand-new look for Zona Politics with Jim Nintzel this week! We've got a fresh new set that our team at Brink have been putting together with the help of designer Kevin Crete and, while we're biased, we think it looks great. Giant thanks to all the folks whose support have gotten us to this point.

This week, we're previewing the Tucson Festival of Books, which happens next Saturday and Sunday, March 14-15. It's one of my favorite weekends in Tucson and a spectacular opportunity to see authors, scientists, journalists and whole bunch more. Our interviews on this week's show include Brenda Viner, who is one of the co-founders of the festival; Tucson Weekly's Margaret Regan, whose new book Detained and Deported examines what happens when undocumented immigrants end up in custody; and novelist Elizabeth Evans, whose As Good As Dead has just arrived in bookstores.

An important programming note: Zona Politics will be airing at 9 a.m. instead of 9:30 a.m. this week and next week on KGUN-9.
