A festival of books might as well be a festival about life. The sixth annual Tucson Festival of Books has it all — science, culture, food, fiction, art and a whole lot more. Organizations and groups from around the city show up to man booths, host activities and volunteer.

“A trademark of the festival is the friendliness of the event,” said Marcy Euler, the festival’s executive director. “The authors say that audiences ask great questions and interact in a personal way. It is part of the charm of Tucson.”

Of the approximately 450 authors at the festival, about one-third call Arizona home, Euler said, and this weekend on the University of Arizona campus these local authors will add their voices to the story of the Tucson Festival of Books.
