|The Annotated WIZARD in Hebrew|
We finally got the chance to meet Gili face-to-face at the Winkie Convention in 1995 and she still holds the record for traveling the farthest to get to the Winkie Convention by traveling from Tel Aviv to California. I saw Gili again at the Centennial Oz Convention in Bloomington, Indiana, in 2000 where she gave me a book, a Hebrew edition of the first Harry Potter title. Gili had become the official Harry Potter translator in Israel! I was very impressed and have proudly shown the book to Potter fans who've visited.
So, as I mentioned, we got to visit with Gili this weekend, and to continue the tradition she brought me two books: a copy of the Hebrew edition of The Annotated Wizard of Oz (which she has translated!) and a Hebrew translation of L. Frank Baum's Magical Monarch of Mo. I am most pleased with my presents.
