The magazine, The Nation, has been around for 150 years, created, according to its website, "by anti-slavery abolitionists four months after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln." The magazine is doing a victory lap with birthday celebrations around the country, and it's landing in Tucson during the 2015 Tucson Festival of Books, March 14 and 15. Tucson is the second of 15 cities where the celebration is touching down.

Here's the schedule of talks and events.
