Night of Fairy Tales: A Wonderful Reading of Oz (COH)
The College of Humanities is holding a really cool event; one of fairy tales, games and music.
Here’s the description from the event page:
“Night of Fairy Tales: A Wonderful Reading of Oz
Friday, April 25, 2014, 6-8 p.m. / At the UA Poetry Center
Come travel with us from Kansas to The Emerald City through film, art, music, and stories in an evening celebrating the 75th anniversary of the movie The Wizard of Oz. This event features readings from L. Frank Baum’s wonderful Oz series, on which the movie was based. Excerpts feature—of course—beloved Dorothy and her “meat dog,” as Toto’s referred to early on in this weird little book. And have you heard about Queen Zixi of Ix, the Patchwork Girl, King Rinkitink, and the Shaggy Man? They’re featured at Night of Fairy Tales too!
Readers include University of Arizona students and faculty. Visual ephemera—and video commentaries from poets, actors, economists, and others—will accompany the readings. Please join us for a Wonderful Reading of Oz and find yourself spellbound by Oz, as by poppies in a vast field.
Dessert reception, games, and music will follow the reading at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
Registration is strongly encouraged.
The event is co-sponsored by the College of the Humanities and Fairy Tale Review.
