Featured will be a painting done by local artist, John Gamble depicting a photo of Peggy Ann Bradnick. Bradnick was kidnapped near Shade Gap, Pennsylvania, on May 11, 1966. Peggy Ann, who was 17 years old at the time, was kidnapped by William Diller Hollenbaugh and held captive for seven days before she was rescued by Pennsylvania State Police and the FBI at a farm in Burnt Cabins, Pennsylvania. Her ordeal made national headlines, and the search was the largest manhunt in United States history at the time.

Peggy Ann Recounts Shade Gap Abduction

Location: Greencastle-Antrim High School Auditorium

The Greencastle Area Arts Council invites you to spend an afternoon with survivor Peggy Ann Bradnick as she recounts her abduction, fifty years ago, near the small town of Shade Gap, Pa, by former mental patient William Hollenbaugh. Hear Peggy Ann tell the audience she is not a victim. "Victims always look back and never go forward - but you have to learn to forgive. So, victim I am not. Survivor, I am." Peggy Ann was only 17 years old when Hollenbaugh took her at gunpoint as she was getting off the school bus with her younger siblings. What followed was eight days of terror for the teenager as search parties of both civilians and law enforcement including FBI agents, combed the mountains. You will learn much more about her ordeal and have an opportunity to ask her questions following her presentation. Her book, "The Voice", soon to be released, which follows her life from her eight days of terror to the present, will be available at Anna's Paperworks on the Square.
