Gregory Maguire, the gay author of “Wicked,” entertained a crowd of about 120 people on Tuesday with excerpts from his newest work and answers to a variety of questions about what it’s like to be the author behind the hit musical.
His appearance at Outwriite Bookstore & Coffeehouse was just a few blocks from the Fox Theatre, where a cast was performing “Wicked.” Maguire was in town to promote “A Lion Among Men,” the third in the darkly political re-imagining of Oz.
During his reading, Maguire delved into the rich fantasy world he’s developed, giving fans more of what they came to expect from the author of “Wicked, The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.”
