#61 Tucson Festival of Books
University of Arizona Campus

Every year local authors and librophiles gather together at the University of Arizona campus in the spring to celebrate the Tucson Festival of Books.  The entire campus sprouts white tents, creating a buzzing energy for what is to come. 

The Tucson Festival of Books hosts thousands of authors, publishers, poets, and spectators from all over the country!  Admission is free, so the Tucson Festival of Books is a great excursion for the whole family.

The Tucson Festival of Books strives to promote literacy throughout Southern Arizona, so supporting this event is a wonderful cause.  Last year, this event raised $150,000 for local literacy charities (bringing the total amount of donations in this event’s three-year history to over $500,000)!
