SAFFORD – In recognition of Women’s History Month, the Safford Friends of the Library will feature Jana Bommersbach, investigative journalist and author. Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 23 at 5:30 p.m. in the library program room.
Besides Calamity Jane and Annie Oakley, do any other Western women come to mind? Probably not. It’s not because there weren’t just as important to settle the West, but because history was so focused on the goons and gunfighters, it forgot the women.
Join us as Jana turns that around and introduces you to women who have made an impact on Arizona history. She will touch upon her new publication, Hellraisers and Trailblazers: The Real Women of the Wild West, which she co-authored with Bob Boze.
Admission is free. Refreshments will be served.
