1/18/23 UPDATE:  Sanders is no longer listed on their Author page, so I guess he’s cancelled: https://tucsonfestivalofbooks.org/?id=67

The Tucson Festival of Books has announced their March 4 & 5, 2023 author schedule and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I) is on their list, with his latest book.


“Bernie Sanders is serving his third term in the U.S. Senate and is the longest-serving Independent member of Congress in American history. He is the chairman of the Budget Committee, where he helped write the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan. Sanders is leading the fight for Medicare for All, for combating climate change, and for making public colleges and universities tuition free. His latest book, “It’s Okay to be Angry About Capitalism,” was released last month.”

He’s not scheduled to speak as yet at the TFB, but stay tuned for date/time.  I’m sure he will draw a crowd, since he has run for U.S. President in 2016 and 2020.  I heard him speak at Reid Park during the 2016 campaign.

Here’s the TFB author presenting schedule to date: https://tucsonfestivalofbooks.org/?id=676. 

The Tucson Festival of Books is held annually during Spring Break on the University of Arizona mall, but took a hiatus during the covid pandemic.
