Maureen O'Hara is making a very rare North American appearance this May in Iowa as part of John Wayne's birthday celebrations!

 

From TCM.com:

 

The John Wayne Birthplace is thrilled to announce that Irish-American screen legend Maureen O'Hara and her family will be joining us in Winterset, Iowa on May 24 & 25, 2013 for our annual John Wayne Birthday Celebration. O'Hara, who starred with Wayne in Rio Grande, The Quiet Man, The Wings of Eagles, McLintock! and Big Jake, considered Duke her best friend and, in this public farewell to her legions of fans, she'll discuss their life-long friendship.

 

The two-day event will feature all aspects of Wayne's film career including roles as/in U.S. Cavalry, cowboys, World War II and, of course, Ireland. In tribute to Miss O'Hara, this year's dinner gala will reprise many of the highlights of last year's Quiet Man celebration: music from the classic film performed by Irish songstress Catherine O'Connell; Chicago's Shannon Rovers Pipes and Drums; and world champion Irish dancers; the Fabulous McKay Sisters.

I hope this gets lots of coverage. It would be great to have some new North American TV interviews with her. Her recent Irish appearances have been wonderful!

Dontcha love the fact that she's like Linkletter and White, sharp as a tack and fun to listen to whatever she's talking about?
