Please join us for an evening with David Grann. #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR AND AN AWARD-WINNING STAFF WRITER AT THE NEW YORKER MAGAZINE
David Grann's book Killers of the Flower Moon delivers a haunting true-life account about one of the most horrific crimes in American history. The tale begins in the 1920s, a time when the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation. After being pushed onto the barren reservation lands in northeast Oklahoma, no one anticipated the Osage would strike oil to a sum rumored to be in excess of the California gold rush. They would not get away with such affluence, either. In a series of poisonings, freak accidents, and unsolved murders, one by one the Osage began to perish under mysterious circumstances. Grann takes readers through a violent conspiracy that saw more than two dozen Osage and white investigators slaughtered between 1920 and 1924.
A finalist for the National Book Award, Killers of the Flower Moon was on the New York Times bestseller list for more than half a year, and was named one of the notable or best books of the year by the country's major newspapers, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times --many of the publications Grann has also written for as a journalist. Killers of the Flower Moon was also named Amazon's single best book of the year.
