We Welcome You

This is a detail from one of the photographs in NPR’s “Witches and Wizards” scrapbook collecting listeners’ memories of Oz.

These young ladies are docents at Dorothy’s House and Land of Oz in Liberal, Kansas. It’s gratifying to see how any girl can represent Dorothy.

The webpage has many more stories, photographs, photographs accompanied by stories, especially of kids in costume. A lot of those stories involve mothers insistent on making a kickass Wizard of Oz outfit and making their progeny wear it.

Me? One year I dressed myself as L. Frank Baum.
