This past weekend was the fabulous Tucson Festival of Books. I heard Tim Egan talk about his new book – Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher about Edward Curtis, which was fascinating.  However, the highlight of my day was the panel discussion with Nevada Barr, JA Jance, and Margaret Coel.  We got in line early and snagged the first two places in line, which equaled a front row seat right in front of Nevada Barr, one of my favorite authors.  All three of these fabulous authors were witty and engaging and it was a real treat to hear them speak.
