TNN Book Club

The New Naples Book Club was created for young professionals ages 21-45 in Southwest Florida who love books and getting together with friends to share thoughts, ideas—and perhaps a glass of rosé. We meet once a month after work at different restaurants and spots around town. Want to join us at our next get-together? Just email to RSVP.

This Month's Details

WHEN: Thursday, Feb. 22, 6-7 p.m. We will be staying for dinner afterward; all are invited!

WHERE: Details will be emailed when you RSVP.

BOOK SELECTION: Wicked by Gregory Maguire

Order your copy:

When Dorothy triumphed over the Wicked Witch of the West in L. Frank Baum’s classic tale, we heard only her side of the story. But what about her arch-nemesis, the mysterious witch? Where did she come from? How did she become so wicked? And what is the true nature of evil?

Gregory Maguire creates a fantasy world so rich and vivid that we will never look at Oz the same way again. Wicked is about a land where animals talk and strive to be treated like first-class citizens, Munchkinlanders seek the comfort of middle-class stability and the Tin Man becomes a victim of domestic violence. And then there is the little green-skinned girl named Elphaba, who will grow up to be the infamous Wicked Witch of the West, a smart, prickly and misunderstood creature who challenges all our preconceived notions about the nature of good and evil.
