Quotes from the Tucson Festival of Books

Scott Turow called Presumed Innocent “a gynecological mystery”
What to do with an unwanted thought? According to Greg Iles, “we’ll have to leave that where Jesus flung it.”
Iles writes from the first person present viewpoint, rather than via omniscient narrator, “because I don’t know any gods personally.”
Dan Millman quoted Daniel Day Lewis’s father - “I write not to be understood but to understand.”
“Snood is a fun word to say.”  Watching Billy Collins shrug and say that from my front row seat was fun, too.
Juan Felipe Herrera, US Poet Laureate from 2015-2017, looked out on the full house and spread his arms wide. “I am so happy we are all together. This is the society we want......the ease.....”
And I’ll leave you with that smile for now.  More details tomorrow.
