Happy Place: The Tucson Festival of Books

For years, my niece and her husband--both professors at the University of Arizona--invited me to visit during the Tucson Festival of Books. "Auntie! You love books! This is a wonderful event! And you love opportunities to leave Iowa in the winter and visit warm places!" Absolutely true on both counts. I would gladly spend every penny I earn to attend writing retreats, festivals, and conferences. It's sheer indulgence to simply dive into what I love with no other responsibilities. I relish the opportunity to learn from so many talented people. And I look forward to the day when I'll have the good fortune to sit on a panel or two and share aspects of this craft and journey with other travelers
