I am wondering what this is like? Has anyone on here been, and if so what did you think?

This very popular event on the U of A campus is huge and gets bigger every year. Famous authors talking/reading non-stop at many different venues. Merchandise for sale everywhere (which is mainly why publishers support these things so enthusiastically). The winners of various writing contests held earlier are honored.

Note there is a softball tournament on campus Saturday afternoon and a basketball game at McKale Center on Saturday night, so I'd recommend Sunday if you're going. Unless you can walk/bike there from where you live, read the instructions on parking carefully.

Are the parking garages expected to fill up quickly? I'm driving in from out of town and don't know the area that well. (I'm only going to be able to attend Sunday).
