The Power of the Group: Join us at the Tucson Festival of Books!

by Laura Orsini

In its 7th year, the Tucson Festival of Books is a premier event for book lovers all over the state, the Southwest, and even the country. With an attendance in the neighborhood of 140,000 last year, the 2015 Festival promises to be bigger and better than ever — in no small part because we will be a part of it!

TFOB logo redTwenty-four members of the Phoenix Publishing &Book Promotion Meetup will share  vendor booth #133 at the Festival, taking place the weekend of March 14th and 15th on the University of Arizona mall. This is the power of the group taken to a whole new level! It’s an outdoor event, and we’re counting on great weather to support our efforts. The Festival is FREE to attend with FREE parking.

There will be many authors and editors offering lectures, seminars, Q&A sessions, and book signings. This will be the place to be. Really!

The authors from our group are listed below, along with their titles and the times on each day they will be signing their books. As I get them, I’ll update this post with titles.

Please be sure to join us if you can. At the VERY least, please share this info with your own writing circles, social media followings, and email lists!
