The Wicked Years series continues with the long-awaited publication of Gregory Maguire's new novel, A Lion Among Men in which he focuses on an Oz original, The Cowardly Lion. Gregory stopped in recently to participate in a Borders book club discussion, and you can watch the video of the lively conversation that ensued here. You can also listen to a podcast with Maguire here and an audio excerpt here.
For a limited time, you can also read all of Wicked, the book that started it all, including the smash Broadway musical that is celebrating its 5th anniversary this month, online, for free! And for something even more fun, find out which Wicked character you are and post it to your profile with the new Facebook quiz! I am, apparently, Glinda, the Good Witch. My mother will be so proud.
I have 15 advance reading copies of A Lion Among Men to give away -- simply click on this link to read a portion of the book (scroll through to page 3 ) and then comment here on what you think of the book's beginning. I'll choose 15 random winners from all the comments made by midnight EST this Friday the 17th.
