This year's festival, to be held Saturday and Sunday, March 13 and 14, at the University of Arizona, will feature workshops, poetry readings, panels, book reviews, writing contests, book sales (of course) and children's activities. Hundreds of authors—including many best-selling ones—will flock to Southern Arizona from across the country to give lectures, interviews and book signings.
