Musn’t get wet, Gregory Maguire warned, after signing a poster and several books for me tonight at the Boston Public Library.

Musn’t get wet, and the culminating event of an 18-city book tour, and a reading of four parts from the new book, Out of Oz, and a little singing and storytelling.

Musn’t get wet and musn’t forget that fairy tales are an alphabet we all learn and musn’t mistake ambition for anarchy or beauty as being skin-deep.

Musn’t get wet, Gregory cautioned, and I said I wouldn’t.
