Denton Reads: Gregory Maguire Lecture


On Saturday, November 21st Denton Reads presents author Gregory Maguire. He will be visiting the City of Denton to talk about his work latest work "Matchless", a haunting re-telling of the classic tale of the "The Little Matchgirl." Maguire is a known advocate for literature, literacy and libraries.

Since Wicked was first published in 1995, millions of readers have discovered Gregory Maguire's fantastically encyclopedic Oz, a world filled with characters both familiar and new, darkly conceived and daringly re-imagined.

This free event begins at 6pm and will be held at TWU MCL Auditorium. A book signing will follow the program. Seating is limited, and tickets will be required. Some tickets will be available for advanced reserve (http://www.twu.edu/library/denton-reads-form.asp),
and the remaining tickets will be available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.

Denton Reads is sponsored by the UNT and TWU libraries, the Denton Public Library and the Denton ISD.
This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Denton Reads is an organization whose goal is to unite the City of Denton by hosting a lecture by a notable author and by featuring discussions of a common text. More information about Denton Reads and its activities can be found at http://dentonreads.unt.edu/.
