Tucson Festival of Books cancelled

Tucson Festival of Books on the University of Arizona campus

The effects of the covid19 pandemic start to hit close to home. The third-largest book festival in the US hosting 100,000 visitors a year (and conveniently located just three miles from my home), has had so many authors back out because of travel and health concerns that it has been cancelled for the first time ever.

Even though I wasn’t going to be speaking at this year’s festival, that is sad news indeed.



  1. I have a feeling this is only the beginning of events being canceled due to Covid-19.

    1. I’m with you, Mary. The orchestra I play in has three concert the same weekend, and it wouldn’t shock me to hear that some or all of them are canceled.
