“TOGETHER THEY LIVED AND TOGETHER THEY DIEDʺ ‐ THE TRAGIC STORY OF BONNIE AND CLYDE

On Thursday, April 25 at 1:00 pm at the Senior Center, join Christopher Daley, historian, author, and public speaker, for this 90 minute presentation. This presentation, which is part travelogue and part history will chronicle the story of Bonnie and Clyde, separating the reality from the myth! For years the
public has been fascinated with the story of this Dust‐bowl Romeo and Juliet. However, much of what we know is mainly from the 1967 movie ʺBonnie and Clydeʺ and more recently a highly fictionalized made for T.V. movie shown on A&E & the History Channel. Much myth, conjecture and outright lies exist about the two Texas bandits but when one delves into the true story of the two lovers a much more interesting and human story emerges; much better than Hollywood was able to depict. This presentation will tell that story through the use of period photographs and movies plus modern photographs and video shot by Mr. Daley. He traveled through the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri on the trail of Bonnie and Clyde, photographing and making a video of the sites of their homes, murders, robberies, shoot‐outs and hide‐outs.

Refreshments will be graciously sponsored by Gather Health. Please register at 617‐730‐2770.
