If you're from Kansas, you've surely encountered plenty of Wizard of Oz jokes and quips. Where's Dorothy? You're not in Kansas anymore! I'm melting! But what you may not know is the fascinating story behind L. Frank Baum's classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. This talk explores the unique appeal of this first truly American fairy tale, and its legacy on our culture from speech, to music, to media. This presentation pulls back the curtain on Baum's crowning achievement. Presented by Chris Glasgow.
