April 5, 2018 –
“Wayward Women of the West” - they all made history but they weren’t all ladies. Their stories are part of the presentation at the Madison Public Library, 6 p.m. Thursday, April 5.
From Virginia City’s favorite courtesan, Julia Bulette, to sharpshooter Annie Oakley and frontier figure Calamity Jane, they were outsized characters who conquered hardships to become legends. But not all the legends are true.
This presentation was developed by Paulette Blair, of the Canby Public LIbrary and, freelance writer Ellie Beman, for the Western website, Head On West, as part of International Women’s Month.
