The Tucson Weekly Incomplete Guide to Some of What We'd Recommend Doing at the Festival of Books 

We like having fun — do you?

Chuck Klosterman

Chuck Klosterman: American Popular CultureSaturday, 1 p.m.

UA Mall Tent

Chuck Klosterman in Conversation with Mike SagerSaturday, 4 p.m.

Koffler - Room 204

While we're not huge fans of Klosterman's novels, his nonfiction work on sports, music, pop culture and the universe as a whole have always been great reads. The conversation with Esquire's Mike Sagar should be particularly interesting. Plus, he has a nice beard.

Adam Rex

Fear, Intrigue, & Humor: Engaging Kids as ReadersSunday, 1 p.m.Education Building - Kiva Auditorium

The subject of our cover story will also sign stuff in our booth (#161) on Saturday at 4 p.m. Also worth noting: Rex has a presentation scheduled for Sunday at 3 p.m. on the McDonald's Story Blanket.

We'll have prizes (including signed Jim Nintzel headshots!), signings (Max Cannon, Saturday at 2 p.m. and the aforementioned Adam Rex appearance), and your chance to meet Tucson Weekly personalities. What more could you ask for?
