'Wicked' author to speak in Atlanta

ATLANTA -- Gregory Maguire, bestselling author of the Wicked series, will speak at two locations in Atlanta this weekend.

Maguire recently published Out of Oz, the final volume in a Wizard of Oz-inspired series that has infiltrated popular culture in so many ways, including a Broadway smash hit.

In Out of Oz, the Emerald City braces itself for an invasion from Munchkinland, Glinda is arrested, the Cowardly Lion becomes a fugitive and Elphaba the Wicked Witch's green granddaughter comes of age. The book is full of revelations, reversals, reprisals and surprises -- including the return of a certain little girl from Kansas.
