With a theme like ours, it would not do to ignore the original Emerald City. No, not the 1939 hit film version. I'm talking about the original Oz of L. Frank Baum. He wrote many stories "In the Land of the Emerald City" and one of his descendants has done the same. Norwescon is very thrilled to have with us, Roger S. Baum. The programming department hopes to be able to explore the many themes of the original Wizard of Oz.
Many of us have grown up watching the annual presentation of Dorothy and her exploits. Our convention theme would not be complete if didn't include this All-American favorite. There is a possibility that we may even have a viewing followed by a critique session. We may even have a munchkin or two wandering around in the halls.
all of this, I hope that all of you will take the opportunity to explore the
many possibilities that exist "In the Land of the Emerald City." Come,
let us join arms and follow the yellow brick road to Norwescon 25!
