Celebrate OZ.....

I have shared this info on my other two blogs and will share it on Facebook this weekend.

I am excited to be hosting my first blog party. It will be about the subject of a story, book, play that holds my interest like no other. The Wizard of OZ. I will grant you that when I was a youngster the movie scared the bejezuz out of me. But after having read the Baum books, watching the play, reading the Maguire books about Elphaba, reading up on the history of the miriade of screenplays and collecting memoriabilia and collectables of the characters, particularly the witches, I am obsessed.

So, after our little 3 part story at Halloween this last year, http://lindaomasoldebaggsnstuftshirts.blogspot.com/2010/10/part-one-sorceress-of-spiders.html/ I thought I would see if there were other obsessed fans of OZ that might like to Celebrate what Mr. Baum started all those years ago.

Celebrate OZ will be on March 19, 2011. The link to the info is cleverly disguised as the darling baby Glinda.

I am writing my own story of the beginnings of OZ as my contribution and will illustrate it with photos of some of my favorite participants in the original version.

Even if you aren't interested in investing any time or energy, if you would post about the event, I would so appreciate it. As a matter of fact, I am expecting a national chain to gift me with a giveaway that is certainly worth everyone's while. Check back to see what they gift me to gift anyone who blogs about the event. Just let me know you have put it on your blog and your name, whether you participate or not, will be entered in the giveaway.

Click your heels together and close your eyes and..................Celebrate OZ

I'm absolutely in! I love the Wizard of Oz and after you said that you'll write an alternative beginning, I was hooked. I'm not much of a visual artist, but I can write. And the idea of creating a story around WoZ is thrilling!
