It's not too early to start making plans to attend the 48th Annual WINKIE CON - the longest running Oz Con ever!
We will be meeting from July 27th to 29th, 2012 at the beautiful Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, California. We will be announcing our program in fuller detail next month but for now I can tell you we will be celebrating the centennial of L. Frank Baum's SKY ISLAND the book he thought his absolute personal best - better even than THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ! We will also be celebrating Ruth Plumly Thompson's Birthday on July 27th with a special focus on her 1931 Oz book THE PURPLE PRINCE OF OZ which turns 80 next year! We will also have all the usual Winkie activities: the Quiz, the Incredible Costume Contest, the Treasure Hunt, and much more, including our great collectible program book.
We also issue a monthly WINKIE CON e-mail newsletter, featuring news, updates,
and cool stuff about the convention. You may subscribe by using the URL below:
