Big crowds at Tucson Festival of Books
It's another gorgeous day in Paradise - warm and sunny with the temperatures climbing towards the low 80s. And it's drawing huge crowds out to the Tucson Festival of Books on the UA campus, where the AZGS booth started drawing visitors an hour before the event opened, while we were still unpacking.

The book festival has become one of the largest in the nation in just a couple years. Organizers expect 75,000 attendees to the 2-day event this weekend, that includes book signings, lectures, interactive displays, performances and more.
