Event Details

Join us at Eddie’s Restaurant, 10 Northwest Highway to discuss Killers of the Flower Moon.

After oil was discovered beneath their land in the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian Nation in Oklahoma. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research, this book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward Native Americans that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Light refreshments will be served.
