We purchased an extra set of tickets to the Tucson Festival of Books’ Rock Bottom Remainders Concert – A benefit for literacy and are passing them along to a Bookmans.com reader. You do not want to miss this group of award-winning authors who will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 13 in the University of Arizona Student Union Memorial Center’s Grand Ballroom to kick-off the 7th Annual Tucson Festival of Books. This extraordinary experience for book lovers also supports literacy programs in Southern Arizona.

Rock Bottom Remainders

In addition to enjoying the performance antics of New York Times best-selling authors Amy Tan, Mitch Albom, Dave Barry, Scott Turow, Ridley Pearson, Greg Iles, Alan Zweibel and Sam Barry, you’ll mingle with other Festival authors, enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks, and take home a limited edition T-shirt created just for this event. Dress in casual concert clothing (jeans are appropriate), but be photo ready as you will definitely want to share your pics on Instagram and Facebook. Tag #TFOB so we can check you out.
