The Tucson Festival of Books is almost here, and it is truly one of the most incredible events in the country! The Tucson Festival of Books, or TFOB for short, is the third-largest literary festival in the U.S. The TFOB 2023 event includes more than 300 presentations, 350 authors, and 200 exhibitors. Of course, Bookmans wouldn’t miss a second of it!

This year, Bookmans is taking our TFOB weekend to an eleven by including some incredible (and new!) festival exclusives, comic book and graphic novel workshops, and of course some incredible exclusives!

Tucson Festival of Books is March 4-5, 2023 on the UA Mall. Bookmans is at Booth 458 and you can get a free tote bag while supplies last.

It’s all happening March 4-5 on the University of Arizona campus in the heart of Tucson! Bookmans will be at booth #458, and you won’t want to miss your chance to stop by and shop a HUGE selection of new and used books at a price that’s good for your wallet. We’ve got lots of fiction, children’s books, YA series, and nonfiction. There are also some pretty great book-lover accessories too!

Bookmans is always a huge deal at TFOB. One of the most coveted festival items each year is the Tucson Festival of Books exclusive Bookmans tote bag. We wouldn’t dream of charging you for it either! All you have to do to grab a TFOB-exclusive tote bag is buy something at the Bookmans booth. We only have 1,000 to give away and that means that there are only 500 each day for customers! It’s truly a tote bag that you’ll want to rock forever. Best of all, it comes in 5 colors. You’re going to want to get to the Bookmans booth ASAP to get yours!
