Riffing on The Wizard of Oz but based in Chinese folklore, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a magical adventure with a lot of heart. It's the story of Minli, the daughter of poor farmers who barely scrape by. Inspired by her father's tales and a magic goldfish, Minli sets off to find the Old Man of the Moon and learn the secret of good fortune. Along the way she encounters royalty, dragons and fantastic stories, and through them she learns what good fortune really means. Based on the 2010 Newbery Honors book, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a beautifully-told fantasy that will keep kids entranced as they join Minli on her journey. Learn More

<p>Joan’s extraordinary journey, her unbounded faith in God, and her passionate determination to enthrone a King; produces what many consider to be Shaw’s greatest play. Expect comic moments amidst the drama. Expect to be inspired, uncertain, dismayed. Above all, expect to recognize, in these characters of the year 1429, qualities and conflicts still crucially important in the world of 2008. Can a young person make a difference in the face of great adversity? Can women be called to the pulpit? Can women be leaders of men? Do we, even now, have the answer to Joan’s final questions: “Oh God, that madest this beautiful earth, when will it be ready to receive thy saints? How long, O Lord, how long?”</p>
