A Wicked good time

Frank Baum's classic The Wizard of Oz has been given an extreme makeover in a prequel of sorts, that revolves around the life of the Wicked Witch of the West (whose name is Elphaba, by the way). What was life like in the land of Oz before Dorothy, Toto, and the house which landed on the Wicked Witch of the East? Gregory Maguire offers his version of the tale in Wicked: The Life and times of the Wicked Witch of the West.

The lunchtime book discussion group will meet to discuss the book on Thursday, February 26th at noon in the WMCC Fortier Library's Study Room 1. Don't forget your lunch!
