The fourth and final novel in the Wicked Years series is on its way. According to theatermania.com, it was announced Thursday that Out of Oz would be released November 1st. The first book in the series, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, was released in 1995.
Soon after came a little Broadway musical called “Wicked.” You may have heard of it.
I feel like few people know the show was based on Gregory Maguire’s novel. I knew that (and have yet to read it), but I was unaware that Wicked was just the first in a series of books Maguire wrote about the wonderful world of Oz. Hmm. May have to add that to the reading list!
