  • Cookbook collectors will have a full plate next weekend for the Tucson Festival of Books.

If you're a serious food lover, chances are you have a small stockpile of food-related reading materials collected already. Well, it's time to add some more to the pile because the Tucson Festival of Books is happening next weekend and is presenting a full schedule of food-centric events on March 14 and 15.

While you can view the full list of planned speakers on the festival's website, know that the topics will range from French cooking to desserts to cooking with birds and playing with knives (note: you should not actually play with knives). The speaking events take place both days from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on the UA campus, primarily at the Culinary Stage.

However, it isn't all about the reading, as there will also be a fair amount of eating involved in conjunction with the event. At the festival itself, Pastiche, Tucson Tamale Co., Renee's Organic Oven, Cafe Santa Rosa and more will be serving food for hungry bookworms.

Although the official Culinary Dinner on Saturday, March 14, is all booked up, the following night, chef Ryan Clark will be inviting Norman Van Aken into his kitchen for a special one-night-only east meets west menu.  The dinner kicks off at 6:30 p.m. at Agustin Kitchen and is limited to just 30 diners. You can reserve your spot for the $85 (plus tax and gratuity) special chef's meal through the dinner's Eventbrite page.
