Fiction Selection: Wicked-The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire

 

In Baum's land of Oz, animals talk and strive to be treated like first-class citizens, Munchkinlanders seek the comfort of middle-class stability and the Tin Man becomes a victim of domestic violence. Green-skinned Elphaba, future Wicked Witch of the West, is smart, prickly and misunderstood; she challenges our preconceived notions about the nature of good and evil.

    I just had an offer accepted on a house in Tucson and will likely still be staring at a Kayak site and emailing broker/inspector. Sorry. I liked the book a lot.

    Anybody coming from South Salem? My car is dead and not sure if it will be running by then.

    All the things are due this weekend, and I have to do a group project meeting in Portland at 3pm. I was so looking forward to this! Enjoy the witchy discussion. I am green with envy.

    This is a fun book that I've read parts of before. The musical based on it is a blast! I look forward to meeting you all and discussing this book.

    It's not easy being green. Kermit? Elphaba? Jolly Gaint Farmer?

      Didn't see this! June already covered it much more concisely. :)

    How often does this group meet?

    June 9, 2013

    • Abi

      We have a meeting every two weeks, but we have four different sub groups. So, if you want to know how often the Fiction subgroup meets, the answer is every other month. However, we also have a Non-Fiction subgroup, a Fantasy/SciFi subgroup, and a Young Adult/Middle Grade children's literature subgroup.

      Hope that helps! :)
