THIRD THURSDAY at the MUSEUM
An Evening with Author Heidi J Osselaer – “Arizona’s Deadliest Gunfight”
Join author Heidi Osselaer as she discusses the research for this book, and the documents she found in local, state and federal archives. She also will detail her trip into the Galiuro Mountains (with bears and ornery mules.) This gunfight was generally believed to be caused by a feud, but her research demonstrates that hysteria during WWI was the true culprit. After a break for great coffee and dessert, she will open the floor for audience discussion because invariably folks with some connection to the story will be in attendance. Enjoy the best local dessert and coffee and an event that is part artist portrait, part history lesson, part community forum and part creative event. Open to the public; donations welcome.
