About the Event

Before Judy Garland, red slippers, the music of   Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg, and technicolor, there was, 39 years   earlier, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum (no   relation), illustrated  by W.W. Denslow,  the first and only   blockbuster book in the 14-volume Oz series. Eclipsed by the Hollywood movie   the Library of Congress notes as “the most watched film ever,” the book   invites (re) reading because of its slightly darker content, reflection of   its time, extraordinary staying power, and prompt to explore the differences   between two great classics – the book and the movie, both marvelous. (Hold the   red slippers, though, they’re silver in the book.) Please join us for a free   and free-wheeling ZOOM talk on the book, sponsored by The Southampton History   Museum and The Amagansett Free Library
