Tucson Festival of Books (TFoB)

Tucson Festival of Books (TFoB)

March 12, 2016

Dear WinkWorld Readers,

TFoB:  Life is just too short to ever miss this wonderful event where 10s of thousands of readers come to celebrate literacy.  Previously, I shared the 2014 Tucson Festival of Books (TFoB), when the participants numbered well over 100,000 wild and crazy readers and authors.

2014 TFoB

Tucson Festival of Books: WOW

I am excited to meet 4 new authors, when I facilitate for their panel discussion.  Each of these authors has a webpage/blog and/or presence on social media, which I share below.  In addition, I am lucky enough to get to help in the Education Building of UofA with the Professional Development for teachers.  How lucky am I?  And, think of all of my new friends.

4 New Authors/Friends Follow.

Amy Sue Norton, Women Fiction Writers

Lisa Fenton and Liz Steinke

Melissa Clark

Here is my planned schedule:

Saturday, 11:30 to 12:30, Student Union, KIVA, “Mending Webs: Adventures in Reuilding a Life”

Sunday, 10:30 to 1:30, College of Education Building, Professional Development for Teachers desk – I will be either at their table on first floor, or at their table on 3rd floor.  Teacher friends, hope you can stop by and say hello.

Stalking Scholars

My absolute fav scholar to be in attendance is Jonathan Kozol, but sadly his two presentations are at the very same time as my previously mentioned commitments.  No worries, I’ll be out stalking him on the UofA grassy mall, and he is hardly the first scholar whom I have stalked.  Last year, it was Noam Chomsky; I had great success.  However, the first time I ever stalked a scholar, it was Adelberto Guerrero during the mid-80s.
