Last Saturday at this time, I was packing up to take another trip to the University of Arizona. 2016 was my fifth year attending the Tucson Festival of Books.
This week, I will be blogging about the panels I attended this year and sharing photographs from the sessions. Today, I am giving you a first look.
Here is Sunny the Saguaro, the Saguaro National Park mascot, giving a high-five outside the National Parks Tent.
We spotted local meterologist, Erin Christiansen, at the KGUN 9 tent.
The next few images are from the Science Stage. Here is the Speckled Rattlesnake from the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.
View my previous Desert Museum post about Big Horn Sheep here.
A Great Horned Owl named Lute from the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.
A North American Porcupine named Rue from the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.
A Mexican Military Macaw from the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.
Panelists from “Understanding our Nearest Neighbors in the Solar System” at the Science Stage.
Diana Gabaldon at the panel: “Diana Gabaldon and Outlander.”
I hope these photos of TFOB 2016 whetted your appetite for more posts! I’ll be back soon.
