Gregory Maguire, author of “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West,” plans to visit Forsyth County to speak and sign books for fans at 7 p.m. March 8 at the Forsyth Conference Center, 3410 Ronald Reagan Blvd., at 7 p.m.
Admission to An Evening with Gregory Maguire is free, but advance registration is requested.
An Evening with Gregory Maguire is sponsored by Forsyth County Public Library, FCPL Friends & Advocates, The Forsyth County Arts Alliance Fund at the Forsyth County Community Foundation, and BookLogix and is part of Forsyth Reads Together (a county-wide program that encourages the whole community to read, discuss, and participate in programs associated with a selected book).
A New York Times bestseller and the inspiration for the hit Broadway musical “Wicked,” the book is also the first in a four-volume series called “The Wicked Years” that includes “Son of a Witch,” “A Lion Among Men,” and “Out of Oz.”
“‘Wicked’ is a favorite among our patrons. We’re already hearing how excited they are to meet Mr. Maguire and have their well-loved and dog-eared copies of their books signed,” said Tracy Walker, program and outreach manager.
Copies of “Wicked” may be borrowed from the library. Barnes & Noble will also be on-site during the event to offer copies of Maguire’s books for sale. Maguire will sign books following his author talk.
