We had a great weekend for the book festival with lots of sunshine, and thousands of people. According to the news, there were 80,000 people who attended the Tucson Festival of Books. Hopefully, some of you were able to come down and partake in the festivities. The Mostly Books crew had a great time selling books and meeting authors. We met Thomas Perry, Phillip Margolin, Alice Hoffman, Elmore Leonard, Masha Hamilton, and many others. And, we can’t forget all of the characters that came out for the event. We met Star Wars troopers, Clifford the Big Red Dog, the Hungry Caterpillar, The Berenstain Bears parents, and many others. Truly, this was an all out book event.
As most of you are aware we had Janis Ian and J.A. Jance do a book signing at our booth on Saturday. It was a great turn out for the authors. In fact, everyone had such a great time that the ladies decided to come back and do an encore signing on Sunday (and I think they had an even better turn out).
The weekend had a bunch of activities crammed into a small amount of time, and we are all exhausted, but we wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. Let us know what you thought of the festival and the authors talks. We would love to hear your feedback.
