David Grann: Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI

When: Wed., June 7, 6-8 p.m. 2017

New Yorker staff writer David Grann, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Lost City of Z, will talk about his new book - a twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history. In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off.
