What is Beyond the Wizard? 

A place to read all of the Oz books currently in the public domain with other readers.

Will we be reading books written by authors other than L. Frank Baum?

Yes, of course! We’ll be reading what is often referred to as the “Famous 40” books. You can see the full list here.

Chapters are sent twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 6am EST.
