Course Description

Professor Fox invites us to don our ruby slippers, if we dare, and stroll down that Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City. It’s time to discover everything OZ. Most of us remember the 1939 movie version with Judy Garland and her talented crew, but not everyone is familiar with L. Frank Baum’s original story, published in 1900, or the artist who illustrated it. There were over a dozen sequels, even more film and television adaptations, several musicals, comic book renderings, and OZ games galore. Allow Professor Fox to help you recognize the complexity and importance of a book designed for children that has had lasting literary and cultural ramifications for adults. “We’re off to see the Wizard!”
