(Host) Ten years ago, author Gregory Maguire took us to the land of Oz with his novel “Wicked”. The book was inspired by The Wizard of Oz, but the focus was on the mysterious Wicked Witch of the West. The novel soon became the basis for a hit Broadway musical.
Gregory Maguire returns to Oz in his new book, “Son of a Witch.” The novel follows the adventures of Lir, a little boy found hiding after the death of the Wicked Witch, who may or may not his mother.
Gregory Maguire is a part-time Vermonter living in Strafford. He spoke with Neal Charnoff about his book.
Note: Maguire will be appearing at the Book Rack in Essex Junction, tomorrow evening at 7.
