Get ready to have some fun and eat some delicious food in celebration of books! The Tucson Festival of Books has entertainment for the whole family. Meet storybook characters like Curious George in the Story Blanket Tent! Get hands on in the Science Tent and watch a model volcano erupt! Be entertained by all kinds of performances, including but not limited to poetry readings, mariachi bands, orchestras, improv, clogging, irish dance and Those Beatles Guys. Food vendors include local favorites such as Eegee’s, Brushfire BBQ and Tucson Tamale Co! Check out the full list of food vendors, here. If you are a bookworm like me, you will appreciate all the new and used books for sale as well as the author panels and events. At the book fest in 2015, I got one of my favorite childhood books, Green Angel, signed by author Alice Hoffman!
