Movies to Books... Off to Read the Wizard!

The Kingwood Library Book Group starts off the New Year with a discussion of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum. Originally published in 1900, it was the first American fairy tale, stirring imaginations of young and old alike for over four generations. Come join us on Monday evening, January 23, at 7 pm in the library's meeting room for a lively discussion of this American classic!
