Join us August 14-16 join Oz Club members and other fans online for a weekend filled with virtual Oz events. Sign up at OzConvention.org so you can share your Oz interests and interact with others. You can also choose to be part of daily live gatherings on Zoom.
When we cancelled Oz the National Convention 2020 it was just one more disappointing domino in the series of Oz events that had been cancelled. The few still planned seemed likely to follow suit — and within weeks that proved true. So I contacted Club members responsible for Oz events around the country and asked them to contribute digital content for a virtual event. And have they ever delivered!
Calling it “To Oz!”, we chose the weekend of Aug. 14-16 for topical presentations including tours, talks, panels, demonstrations, performances, crafts, readings, and interviews. A fundraiser covered software expenses, and Club member Dewey Davis-Thompson generously offered to develop the site for us as a self-contained online community.
I hope you’ll sign up and join the fun. It’s part convention, part festival, and — my favorite part — serves up a terrific cross-section of the Oz community.
