Tom O’Day and Bronco Nell are coming to Vermillion!

The Friends of the Library will once again be partnering with OLLI and the SD Humanities Council for their 2018 Literary Lunch presenter, Living History Performer Ray Maple.

Wearing period costume, Maple will recall the life and times of early day Wyoming outlaw Tom O’ Day, who rode with Butch Cassidy and was involved in the botched Belle Fourche bank robbery. His tales include outlaws and famous persons of the 1880’s through 1930 when Tom died in Timber Lake, SD. He will also tell about Ella Smith, aka Bronco Nell, a partner and horse thief from Meeteetse, WY who was the last woman to serve time in the state penitentiary.

The Literary Lunch is open to everyone – you need not be an OLLI member to attend!

Tickets will be available at the Library front desk from Fri., March 23 through Sun, April 8.

Seating is limited, so get your tickets early for this fun event!
