Best Place to have Your Literary, Educational and Cultural IQ Raised by Osmosis 

Tucson Festival of Books

Staff Pick

When local business titans Bill Viner and Bruce Beach first proposed this idea—an author-driven event modeled after the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books—not even they, in their wildest dreams, could have imagined how successful this event would be. Featuring hundreds of authors, the festival offers scores of workshops, panel discussions, readings and lectures with a heavy emphasis on Q&A. There are also entertainment tents, expansive interactive science and children's areas, and hundreds of vendors, all spread out over the University of Arizona Campus in mid-March during spring break (in an exquisite irony that is probably lost on most). Although just being there is an experience, participating as one of TFB's hundreds of volunteers is also a great way to get cultured-up.
