An Evening with Gregory Maguire – SOLD OUT
October 23, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
We are thrilled to announce a very special evening with bestselling author Gregory Maguire! Author of hit novels such as “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West,” “Son of a Witch,” and “Confessions of an Ugly Step Sister,” this exciting event will consist of a talk regarding the inspiration for the novel Wicked, followed by a Q&A and book signing.
The 1995 publication of Wicked sparked a new wave in the perception of the infamous “wicked” witch. Written from the perspective of the Wicked Witch of the West, this novel became a sensation. In 2003 the best selling novel was adapted into a hit Broadway play, and by 2018 it became the sixth-longest running show in Broadway history. Join us for a fabulous wrap up to our celebration of the eightieth anniversary of the film “The Wizard of Oz,” with a man personally responsible for bringing this story back to audiences of all ages, this time with a very new take on an old figure.
Doors open at 6:30 and the event will conclude at 9:00. This is a free event, but due to limited seating pre-registration is required. Learn more here.
Note: This event is sold out. Visit SalemWitchMuseum.com for more information about October events and visiting the museum.
