“True Grit” & True stories of Annie Oakley & Buffalo Bill on Staten Island

Tuesday, Dec 12th, 2:30pm at Todt Hill-Westerleigh Branch Library, 2550 Victory Blvd, SINY 10314

Librarian and local historian Andrew Wilson leads a lively book chat series, which will focus on Charles Portis’ novella True Grit.  Andrew will also share images and stories about Annie Oakley & Buffalo Bill Cody on Staten Island.  In the late 19th century, their Wild West Show was performed on the North Shore, in Mariner’s Harbor – in an area that was then called “Erastina”.  Here is a link to Andrew Wilson’s blog:
