Tucson Festival of Books - Day 2

Got to hear these 2 brilliant authors read from their spanking new books! Aisha Sloan's Fluency of Light, a book of essays from the UofIowa and Matt Mendez' Twitching Heart from Floricanto Press. I predict these 2 authors will create many more books. Wonderful debut books.

Also got to sit in on Debra Brenegan's session on Creating the Historical Persona. Love her! Her latest, Shame the Devil is also on my list.

Lastly, 3 bio writers writing about: Molly Brown (known as The Unsinkable), Joshephine Earp (yup, "wife" of that Wyatt guy) and Bonnie (late of Bonnie & Clyde).

So much fascinating history to catch up on. Can't wait to see all the history books modified with all the good new info these folks have uncovered.

Wonderful day in Tucson. Average temp about 62 and sunny. Yippee!
