Earlier this month, the Knickerbocker Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution co-hosted a special luncheon with the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. The event took place at Sarabeth’s Park Avenue South.
Thelma Adams – author of the recently published Last Woman Standing, a historical novel written from the perspective of Josephine Earp, a New York Jew who moved out west and married famed lawman Wyatt Earp – was the featured speaker at the event.
The luncheon was attended by many members of the DAR and many friends and members of the NYG&B Society. The afternoon was filled with great conversation, amazing food, and a fascinating talk by Thelma Adams.
Thelma spoke of the challenge and importance of writing a work that gives a voice and story to such an amazing woman. Not only did Thelma captivate the audience with riveting stories from the life of Josephine, but she also touched on the deep importance of writing biographical content about those that history has overlooked.
