The Palmer Lake Historical Society presents:

“Poker Alice Tubbs:  The Straight Story”

A presentation by Liz Duckworth

On Thursday, February 21, at 7:00 p.m., you will hear the story of an adventurous lady gambler in the Wild West.  Poker Alice Tubbs will come alive through Liz Duckworth’s performance as the cigar-smoking “woman in a man’s world.”  Learn about Poker Alice’s adventures in mining boomtowns in Colorado, New Mexico, and South Dakota.  Liz Duckworth notes that while a lot of the tales “ain’t entirely true,” the real story is even better than the myths.

Liz Duckworth lives in Colorado Springs and is a freelance copywriter and editor as well as the author of several books. She has performed multiple times as Poker Alice Tubbs and is a regular actress in Red Herring Productions murder mysteries.  Her website offers a behind-the-scenes look at the world of Poker Alice:  www.PokerAliceHistory.com.

This event is free and open to all.  Light refreshments will be served after the presentation
