Event description

Description

Join us for a magical evening with Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked, After Alice, Mirror Mirror, and his newest novel, Hiddensee. Like all of Maguire's books, Hiddensee takes a well-known story--in this case, The Nutcracker--and transforms it by bringing the characters to vivid life and fleshing out details of the original work. Hiddensee explores the making of the Nutcracker, as well as the life of Drosselmeier, the man who carved the toy for his goddaughter, Klara. A book signing will follow.

Part of the Great Authors at the Library series. Made possible with support from the Library Friends.
