If you're looking for something awesome to do with the family this weekend - for free - head over to the Tucson Festival of Books.

There's tons to see there - from your favorite authors to science exhibits to an amazing kids' area with activities, giveaways and character appearances.  

I'll be there from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Saturday in the Arizona Daily Star tent.  If you're around, stop by. I'd love to meet some of my readers. I'll also have a suggestion box, so feel free to let me know some of your ideas, tips and suggestions.

The festival takes place Saturday and Sunday at the UA Mall and nearby venues. Click here for a schedule of events.
