2 Dorothys travel through ‘Oz’ book, film To honor the 75th anniversary of the motion picture “The Wizard of Oz,” the Special Collections department of UNC Charlotte’s Atkins Library has created an exhibit of rare copies of the L. Frank Baum books that inspired the movie. In the classic tug-of-war about which is better – the book or the movie – the film version of “The Wizard of Oz” pulls its weight like no other. But to take a side, said Mark West – a UNC Charlotte English professor, an expert on Baum’s books – people first have to understand how completely different the two are from one another. The collection will be on display until Jan. 17.
