Every year, teens and tweens get the opportunity to interview authors at the Tucson Festival of Books. 2023 was the 14th year for the Festival of Books and the Teen & Tween Audio Interviews go just as far back. The interviews give the youth a chance to interview an author after reading one of their books.
The Tucson Festival of Books had an amazing list of authors this year, and Pima County youth interviewed seven of these amazing authors on the University of Arizona campus.
