Lillian Frances Smith was Annie Oakley’s chief rival, a professional sharpshooter with top billing in Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West before she reached her teens. Author Julia Bricklin explores the talents that made Smith a star and peels away the layers of her fifty-year career, from the ten-year-old “California Huntress” to her reinvention as “Princess Wenona,” a forged Indian persona that shielded her tumultuous private life. A book signing with Bricklin will follow the presentation.
