A Wild Winter Swan: Retelling Fairy Tales with Maria Tatar and Gregory Maguire

After brilliantly reimagining the worlds of Oz, Wonderland, Dickensian London, and the Nutcracker, the New York Times bestselling author of Wicked turns his unconventional genius to Hans Christian Andersen's "The Wild Swans," transforming this classic tale into an Italian-American girl's poignant coming-of-age story, set amid the magic of Christmas in 1960s New York. Join renowned folklore and fairytale scholar and professor Maria Tatar, author of The Fairest of Them All and many other books, in conversation with award-winning author Gregory Maguire discussing his new book, A Wild Winter Swan, and the 25th anniversary edition of Wicked, which was the basis of the Tony Award winning musical.
