Visiting Writer Bonnie Jo Campbell  

On women and guns: 'Women and men shoot equally well—it’s one of the few sports in which men and women compete together. In a way you can say guns are masculine, and in general more men shoot than women do,’ Campbell said. ‘But what if I ask you, ‘Who was the best shooter you know?’ 

Several in the audience said, ‘Annie Oakley.’

That’s an interesting thing about America. Annie Oakley is still our best shooter. No one else has so captured our imagination.'
