Take a "Wicked" look at Oz
March 15, 2011
It ain't easy being green. Just ask Elphaba, the future Wicked Witch of the West and the central character of Wicked, April's BookTalk selection at the Mid-Continent Public Library-Kearney Branch.
In Wicked, Gregory Maguire sets the "Merry Old Land of Oz" on its ear. And with wry wit, it tells the story from the perspective of the other girl who wore the ruby slippers. So, was the Wicked Witch of the West really evil or just misunderstood?
Pick up a copy of Wicked at our circulation desk. Then, join us on Friday, April 1 at 10 a.m. to discuss this and other burning questions that pop up along the Yellow Brick Road.
