Enchanting generations of fans, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, first published in 1900, was written by a man whose life was nearly as adventurous as his heroine's legendary trip. Ambitious and drawn to the unconventional, L. Frank Baum was at the forefront of moving picture technology, championed women's rights and immersed himself in the occult. Loncraine's unique celebration of Baum's life explores the eventful times in which Baum lived, which influenced nearly every aspect of the Oz tales - from the Civil War to Hollywood. A lively tour of a fascinating era.
