Writers Welcome Annie Oakley

Annie Oakley to entertain and educate guests at the Eastern Shore Writers Association’s first gathering of the New Year, to be held at Clearview at Horn’s Point in Cambridge, MD beginning at 11:00 a.m..

Guest speaker and Cambridge resident Mary Handley will entertain and enlighten the writers group with her acclaimed portrayal of the American icon nicknamed “Little Sureshot” by Chief Sitting Bull. It is appropriate that this particular meeting of the ESWA organization take place in Cambridge, where the real Annie Oakley built a home and lived with her husband, Frank Butler, from 1913 to 1917.
Due largely to the carefully recorded interviews and detailed accounts of history-making events, it is now possible for the public of today to be entertained by Mary Handley’s expert personification of Annie. As such, her presentation will focus on a discussion of how the extensive research of the life and times of Annie helps her to do so, and will explore the dual arts of “characterization” and “research” as used by writers.

The event is free and open to the public, with an optional lunch offered at a cost of $20.00 following the presentation. As always, an RSVP would be appreciated.
