How Mayhem Became Myth

How a 30-second gunfight between Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday at the O.K. Corral became entertainment for millions around the world.

Journey back to the American Wild West with internationally acclaimed American novelist and author of Doc (2011), Mary Doria Russell. She will be speaking about her novel and how a seemingly-mundane shootout has become romanticized, and has ultimately gone down in American legend as one of the most famous gunfights in the history of the Old West.
