Ann Kirschner - Lady at the O.K. Corral: The True Story of Josephine Marcus Earp

Friday, November 22, 2013 - 7:00pm

The author of the acclaimed Sala's Gift delivers the definitive biography of Josephine Marcus Earp, a Jewish woman from New York who became the common-law wife of famed lawman and gambler Wyatt Earp. For nearly fifty years, she lived with the most famous lawman of the Old West; yet Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp has nearly been erased from Western lore. In this fascinating biography, The Lady at the O.K. Corral: The True Story of Josephine Marcus Earp ($27.99), Ann Kirschner brings Josephine out of the shadows of history to tell her full story--a spirited and colorful tale of ambition, adventure, selfinvention, and romance reflective of America itself, from the post-Civil War years to World War II.

Ann Kirschner is University Dean of Macaulay Honors College at The City University of New York. She began her career as a lecturer in Victorian literature at Princeton University, where she earned her Ph.D. A writer of wide-ranging interests, she is the author of Sala’s Gift (Simon and Schuster, 2006) and an innovator in education, media, and technology.
