Art Walk Night October 8th. 7:00 pm

Julienne Le Fleur's Lessons from Oz is a new book that recaptures the magic of the classic film The Wizard of Oz while pondering life, and illuminating over 35 lessons that we, as grown-ups, tend to forget. Some are whimsical, some are serious and some might make you want to go skipping. (and the very cool added feature – sparkles on the cover!)
Dorothy’s journey through Oz is an allegory that directly parallels our lives. In each scene, from the beginning of the movie to the end, a lesson can be found in Dorothy’s experiences.
These lessons are good reminders of things we already know but sometimes forget—ways to be and live that make us feel great about ourselves and our lives. If we learn from these lessons, we will begin to see that our actions and positive attitudes influence the world around us, making it a better place.
Dorothy’s lessons can be our lessons.
