WELCOME and thank you for joining Mayor Buddy’s Book Club. We are very excited to have you on board! You’ve got just a few weeks to read our newest selection, a graphic novel adaptation of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by Eric Shanower and Skottie Young!
When Kansas farm girl Dorothy flies away to the magical Land of Oz, she fatally flattens a Wicked Witch, liberates a Scarecrow and is hailed by the Munchkin people as a great sorceress…but all she really wants to know is: how does she get home?
This graphic novel doesn’t have page numbers so we’re not giving a suggested schedule, but we think you’re going to love that this is written comic book style.
The Mayor Buddy’s Book Club web-page is updated regularly so check in often to learn about our current book selection, participate in quizzes and surveys and to learn about events!
Prizes will be given out to Book Club Members who participate regularly, so come back often to get involved! We will also be celebrating the end of the book parties together so look for that notice in December!
If you don’t have a copy yet, swing by to pick one up and say hi!
We’d love to get you your own person copy so that you have time to read it before our end of book party on November 7th.

Now Emily, her younger brother William, their friend Jack and Corrigan must choose sides. But will they be able to make the right choice before our world is destroyed?
