Winkie Con 50
Welcome, everyone, to the Land of Oz! This year’s Winkie Con not only marks its first half-century, but also its first convention in San Diego – a city with many connections to L. Frank Baum, the creator of Oz. Baum spent winters at the Hotel Del Coronado and then rented a house in Coronado where he wrote the fifth Oz book, The Road to Oz. The coast of La Jolla was a starting point in several of Baum’s fantasies, including The Scarecrow of Oz. We’ll be exploring these San Diego connections to Oz and more at Winkie Con 50.
