For three years now we've been intending to go to this festival, and I think maybe this year we'll be able to do so! It's the 10th annual Arizona Book Festival, held this Saturday, April 14, from 10 AM to 5 PM. It will be held in Carnegie Library Park, 1101 W. Washington Street, in Phoenix. Their web site, www.azbookfestival.org , has pages of information, including detailed information about parking and bus information.
There will be events going on all day, at six locations, including a stage for children's book authors. The list of writers who will appear is long, so check the web site for details. There will also be many booths to check out. I printed out the schedule to take with us. It will be hard to decide among so many possibilites! One that looks particularly fascinating is a presentation by Bill Carter, who wrote the book Fools Rush In about his experiences in Sarajevo, which led to the creation of "his award-winning documentary, Miss Sarajevo." The film itself will be shown twice during the day. Oh, yes - admission to the event is free.
