Ann Kirschner presents her biography of Josephine Marcus Earp, a Jewish woman from New York who became the common-law wife of famed lawman and gambler Wyatt Earp.
Lady at the O.K. Corral uncovers conflicts and questions about American history dramatized in Josephine’s story: the end of the real American frontier and the rise of its mythology; the seismic shifts in public attitudes toward prostitution, gambling, and alcohol; and the untold stories of the fearless women who helped develop the American frontier. A book signing follows the program.
“Scrumptious . . . This quick-paced biography has it all going on: sex, beauty, blood, guns, bad men, and wild girls. Not to mention Hollywood and history.” — USA Today
Presented in association with Jews in the Los Angeles Mosaic.
