Our June read is "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West" by Gregory Maguire. This is a fantastic book, that launched a series of books and a Broadway musical. Amazon.com describes it as follows: "This is the book that started it all! The basis for the smash hit Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Gregory Maguire's breathtaking New York Times bestseller Wicked views the land of Oz, its inhabitants, its Wizard, and the Emerald City, through a darker and greener (not rosier) lens. Brilliantly inventive, Wicked offers us a radical new evaluation of one of the most feared and hated characters in all of literature: the much maligned Wicked Witch of the West who, as Maguire tells us, wasn’t nearly as Wicked as we imagined."
This is a fun read, and great for Wizard of Oz fans (which, let's face it, is most of us!). Hope to see you there in June!!
