Harry Hartog Woden invites you to meet Stephanie Owen Reeder for the launch of the latest book in her award-winning Heritage Heroes series: Marvellous Miss May, Queen of the Circus on Saturday 17 February at 11.00 AM.
There will be book signings, popcorn and a circus performance!
In 1901, aged just seven, tiny contortionist May Zinga was given away to Wirth Brothers Circus by her desperate mother. Imagine Miss May’s horror when the first thing the Wirths did was cut off all her long hair. Poor May had lost both her family and her crowning glory! But this feisty, talented and determined little girl did not give up. Despite many setbacks, including a horrific accident, she kept fighting to fulfil her dream of becoming the best bareback rider in the world, performing the same dangerous acrobatic feats as male riders––only better!
