David Grann: Killers of the Flower Moon

Sat, Nov 11, 2017 from 11:45 am - 12:45 pm PST
1126 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

David Grann, New Yorker staff writer and author of The Lost City of Z, discusses his new book, the bestseller Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, a twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the 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 American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Grann will be interviewed by OPB’s Geoff Norcross.

“Disturbing and riveting…It will sear your soul.” —Dave Eggers, New York Times Book Review

“A shocking whodunit…What more could fans of true-crime thrillers ask?”—USA Today
