Tucson Festival of Books

Hi all! Just wanted to post a quick news update.

I’ll be making an appearance at the Tucson Festival of Books on March 14th and 15th, from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm. The festival is being held at the University of Arizona (which also happens to be my alma mater, so I’m super excited to being going back!). I’ll be in the Book Goodies booth with several other authors, so if you’re in the area please to stop by to say hello! (I’ll keep you posted on the booth number, once I find out).

I recently did an author interview for Book Goodies, in anticipation of the festival. If you’re the curious type, I invite you to click on the following link: Interview with Author – Eva Vanrell
