This weekend the Tucson had its 4th annual Festival of Books on the University of Arizona Campus. This event brings together authors, publishers and the reading public in a family-friendly community event. Net proceeds of the Festival are used to promote literacy in Southern Arizona.
At the event, not only do famous and not so famous authors read, do signings and give speeches, but there is also a children's section, people in costume, a food court with food from various local Tucson restaurants and live music. A wonderful way for sure to promote literacy and reading here in Southern Arizona.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
