RWB Book Club
The Royal Winnipeg Ballet is proud to launch our very-first book club for our 79th season, a season featuring fascinating female lead roles.
All are welcome to join us as we venture alongside our upcoming season’s four protagonists: The Handmaid Tale’s Offred, Clara from Nutcracker, Juliet from Romeo & Juliet, and The Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy.
Members of the book club are encouraged to participate in discussions on our RWB Book Club Facebook group and are invited to attend our in-person book club meeting that takes place after every Friday’s performance.
We will be exploring the following stories: Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Gregory Maguire’s Hiddensee (a retelling of Nutcracker), Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, and L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Feel free to join for as many as you like!
