Gregory Maguire shot to fame with his Wizard of Oz remix Wicked, later adapted as a Tony-winning musical that is now the 5th longest-running show in Broadway history. In this moderated conversation, Maguire discusses his “revisionist history” of L. Frank Baum’s fantastic universe, including its ongoing relevance in a world where we too easily put people in boxes labeled “wicked” and “good.” Maguire will sign books after his talk, including the latest in his Oz series, The Oracle of Maracoor.
Gregory Maguire is the author of about forty books for children and for adults. His best-known work is Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, which inspired the Broadway musical of the same name. More recently, he is the author of Cress Watercress, an animal fable for children about loss, growth, and survival. For adults, his series Another Day follows the exploits in a foreign land of Rain Ko, the granddaughter of the Wicked Witch of the West from Wicked. He has appeared on Oprah and been profiled in the Sunday New York Times Magazine.
