Arizona Spotlight with Mark McLemore

The Tucson Festival of Books was an amazing experience: an almost entirely volunteer effort to raise money and awareness of literacy that’s grown to be one of the largest festivals of its kind in just three years. I got to see this jam-packed exhibit on the Arizona campus (where several good friends have gone to school;) got to see two dear old friends and make a bunch of new ones, including: two women who teach Bhutanese refugees in the community, several people who’ve been to Bhutan (one very long ago,) some wonderful people who are about to go to Bhutan (like the head of the area Women’s Foundation, who hosted me at an event on Thursday night) and the wonderful owner of Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore…..and to experience the beautiful desert surroundings.

Here’s an interview that ran that ran on Arizona Public Radio’s Arizona Spotlight by the golden-voiced Mark McLemore; spot the error (unless it gets fixed right away) on the accompanying webpage.
