What a coincidence, considering my posts from yesterday.
(From The Writer’s Almanac, May 15, 2010.) It’s the birthday of the man who wrote one of the best-known tales in America, The Wizard of Oz. L. Frank Baum was born in Chittenango, New York, on this day in 1856. The tale, which he wrote as a children’s novel, was first published in 1900.
