Welcome to Charloz 2024!

Illustrated by Ryan Miller, Atkins Library

September 26-29, 2024

CharlOz’s three-day interdisciplinary festival explores how L. Frank Baum’s fairy tale timelessly reflects American values with its vast array of characters. Even as the Oz theme inspires new interpretations, it remains relevant, celebrating all representations of non-traditional characters.

CharlOz is hosted in collaboration with:

J. Murrey Atkins Library
Area 49
The Oz Club
Land of Oz
The Dubios Center
UNC Charlotte Projective Eye Gallery

This program is supported in part by North Carolina Humanities, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, www.nchumanities.org.
