The Tucson Festival of Books is a community-wide celebration of literature. Offered free-of-charge, the Festival exists to improve literacy rates among children and adults. All proceeds from the Festival are used to sustain the event and support local literacy programs.
Over 350 authors participate in presentations and workshops attracting diverse audiences. There is something for everyone at the Tucson Festival of Books...we offer programming for children and teens, panels by best-selling and emerging authors, a literary circus, culturally diverse programs, a poetry venue, exhibitor booths and two food courts. Words and imagination come to life at every venue during Festival weekend.
In addition to the contribution to literacy organizations, the Festival attracts over $3-million to the local economy from visitors to the area. Hotels and restaurants benefit from the influx of tourists that visit from throughout the state and across the country each March. Because the Festival is provided free of charge, the greater Tucson community benefits from the celebration of the written word each spring.
