The ‘Wizard of Oz’ and our economic woes

Could it be that symbols of monetary reform were embedded in the most beloved children’s story of all time, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz?”

Perhaps these symbols will point the way out of our economic troubles today. Decide for yourself; attend the free viewing of “The Secret of Oz” on Sunday, Nov. 28, 3 to 5 p.m., at Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (in the Greenbrier Plaza).

The film is directed by Bill Still, who focuses on the populist movement of the late 1800s — The William Jennings Bryan era — when the monetary reformers were strongest,right when L. Frank Baum wrote “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”

The 110-minute documentary is presented by Southwest Light and Learning Center, a nonprofit institute for higher awareness. Every month Southwest Light and Learning Center holds alternative movies free to the public.

Please join us on Sunday, Nov. 28. A group discussion will follow along with tea and a light snack.

These monthly alternative movies are free and open to the public, with donations accepted to help support Southwest Light and Learning Center, an institute for higher awareness. For more information, contact Annie Miller, 759-2983.
