Tucson Festival of Books


Since it began in 2009, the Tucson Festival of books, a two-day event on the University of Arizona campus, has seen attendance double to over 100,000. I was down on Saturday March 10 for a two-hour book signing stint in the West Authors Pavilion for both Spirit Stones and Power’s Garden and again on Sunday the 11th for a few hours at the Five Star Publications tent. I also gave a brief talk on Spirit Stones at the University of Arizona Alumni Pavilion. This venue is always a very laid back and friendly affair and I love talking with readers. They’re engaged, polite, smart and attentive. And they have some great stories. One fellow told me he’d bicycled into Power’s Garden about ten years ago, finding the trip to be an extraordinary adventure. A professional photographer described visiting many of the stones mentioned in Spirit Stones for a collection of night shots. I’m pleased to say too that both Power’s Garden and Spirit Stones proved quite popular. I’ll go back next year for sure.
