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 (,
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
