Victoria Wilcox is scheduled to speak at the Alpha-Nu-Psi Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta’s annual initiation on Friday, Apr. 19, at 7 p.m. in room B14 of the Clayton State University Lecture Hall.
Wilcox, the founding director of Georgia’s Holliday-Dorsey-Fife House Museum, the antebellum home of the family of Doc Holliday, will be talking on “Gone with the Wind Goes West: The Surprising Southern Heritage of Doc Holliday.”
Working so closely to the House Museum inspired Wilcox to conduct 18 years of original research and produce her first novel trilogy, “Southern Son: The Saga of Doc Holliday.”
The book tour for “Inheritance,
the first volume in the saga, will take her across the country to all the places Doc Holliday knew in his adventurous life, including a return to Tombstone, Az., site of the OK Corral shootout.
As a member of the Western Writers of America, her writing on the Old South and the Wild West has been featured in publications such as TrueWest Magazine
and North Georgia Journal.
Wilcox has also written songs for Nashville recording artists and authored the musical Goin’ To Zion!
along with numerous smaller theatrical works. She has been an advisor and contributor to other authors, has lectured extensively, and has appeared on various television programs relating to her work.
Colleen S. Hartmann, a Middle Grades Education major from Forest Park, will be honored with her initiation into the society.
