Oz in the News 2.22.14

art-353-Elizabeth-Gilbert-300x0Elizabeth Gilbert: Books that changed me   “The Wizard of Oz series by L. Frank Baum. This is my origin story. I grew up with well-worn copies of these books – books that had been handed down through my family for several generations, complete with the stunning art deco illustrations. The Oz stories were tales of a farm girl (which I was) who went on otherworldly adventures (which I wanted to do) and who was incredibly brave (which I still want to be). I always credit these books with making me into a traveller and a writer. If you have an especially dreamy little girl in your house, forget about Disney videos – get her a box set of these babies.”
