The Astonishing True Story of the Kopp Sisters
Thursday, July 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This year’s summer reading theme is Imagine Your Story. Join us via Zoom to learn how bestselling author Amy Stewart brought a little-known true story from New Jersey’s past to life.
Amy Stewart’s Kopp Sisters novels, starting with Girl Waits with Gun, are based on the true story of three extraordinary women: Constance, Norma, and Fleurette Kopp. In 2012, Stewart stumbled across a 1914 newspaper article about them and went on to uncover their amazing history through genealogical archives, court records, old newspapers, and interviews with family members. From their story, she has written a series about the Kopp sisters and their adventures in crime-fighting.
Stewart will share photographs and stories about these extraordinary women and the fascinating historical background that shaped their world a hundred years ago.
The entire Kopp Sisters series (so far) is part of our RBdigital ebook collection.
