Andrew Isenberg - Wyatt Earp

Colfax Avenue: Historian Andrew Isenberg will discuss and sign his new book Wyatt Earp: A Vigilante Life (FS&G). In popular culture, Wyatt Earp is the hero of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, and a beacon of rough justice in the tumultuous American West. The subject of dozens of films, he has been invoked in battles against organized crime (in the 1930s), communism (in the 1950s), and al-Qaeda (after 2001). Yet, as Isenberg reveals in his book, the Hollywood Earp is largely a fiction—one created by none other than Earp himself.
