This month we take it back to the turn of the 20th century with one of the most beloved children's classics - L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It's a nice relaxing and fun read that's perfect for these languid summer days. You can read the introduction on the Book Club page now and then join us on Monday, August 11, when we discuss it in person at the Book Cellar. New members are always welcome
