Stephanie Wing's love affair with The Wizard of Oz becomes personified in her life when she attempts to go to a different place than the one she was in. She lives on the prairie in Aurora, CO in the 80s. Her dad teaches her how to fight. It was years later that she was finally able to find the good in her father.
Stephanie Wing was born in Bozeman while her folks were going to college. She has been teaching English and Art at Willard Alternative school for the past 6 years. In the meantime she has stolen ribbons from her best friend’s horse’s mane, lived in a hut with her daughter Gwyndelynn, who taught her everything she knows, and once almost drowned in the Lochsau River.
This edition of Tell Us Something was recorded on July 25, 2015 at the PEAS Farm in Missoula, MT. Stephanie's story is titled "There's No Place Like Home". Thank you for listening.
