The Third annual Tucson Festival of Books came to a close after thousands of Tucsonans came out to participate in book signings, workshops, panels, food, and games.

Tucson Weekly writer Jim Nintzel participated in a panel on Saturday morning, talking about the January 8 shootings, along with several other journalists; while freelancer Jay Rochlin moderated a panel on Dispatches from the Borderlands, a presentation with five authors who have covered the border in their books, including TW Arts Editor Margaret Regan(Fashion collection).

Human Project entertainers performed at one of many stages Sunday. Members of the same troupe performed at last Novembers Pima County Democrats election-night party where they were introduced by Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.  Photograph by STEPHANIE FOUSSE © 2011
