Oro Valley Book Festival 2007


Oro Valley Rocks

This is the second annual Oro Valley Book Festival. It is shaping up to be a “Rock’in” event Saturday November, 3. It is a FREE event starting at 9 a.m. going to 3 p.m. This event is totally going to Rock. There were approximately 3,000 people here last year for the first event. Don’t be surprised if that number doubles for this second year’s event and activities.

If you like to collect books by local authors and have them sign your copies this is a great opportunity. And if you want your children to be introduced to the wonderful word of books and the writing of books along with many activities for the entire family this is the place to be.
