Finding Dorothy written by Elizabeth Letts tells the story behind The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, written by L. Frank Baum. The author looks through the eyes of Maud (the author’s wife) recalling the family’s hardships faced in South Dakota to being on the set for the filming of the famous Hollywood film. While visiting the set at age 78, Maud meets 16-year-old Judy Garland where they both connect and form a lasting bond. Fact and fiction are uniquely woven together to create a fascinating read.

The library is closed on Friday’s, please use the back door by the meeting room to enter.
