Join us for a day of Western-themed family programming inspired by the book True Grit.
11 a.m. – 3 p.m. – Families can expect to enjoy chuck wagon grub, meet and learn about Cameo the horse and her cowboy Paul, hear stories of real western heroes such as Nat Love and Stagecoach Mary, play western games, get creative with hands-on art activities and don’t forget to snag a pic with John Wayne.
1 p.m. – Hear from Jay Jennings, author of Escape Velocity: A Charles Portis Miscellany, who will provide insight from his 30-year relationship into the life of Charles Portis, author of True Grit. A book signing will follow.
