Festival of Books
The Festival of Books is a two-day event in March from 9:30am to 5:30pm that attracts more than 130,000 book enthusiasts. Sources, like National Public Radio mentions that the Tucson Festival of Books is the 3rd largest book festival in the country. The Tucson Festival of Books supports organizations, focusing to improve literacy rates in Southern Arizona. This year was the 8th Annual with over 350 authors and in addition to book lovers it also features a strong Science City, where AIAA had a booth for the first time. We had 2 tables at the Science for Tomorrow pavilion tents on the Main Mall at the University of Arizona Campus. Our booth must have received about 1,000 visitors each day. Professional AIAA members, including Michelle Rouch worked with the kids in making paper airplanes adding artwork to their creation, making the piece unique and fun.
