Our True Crime Tuesdays book club is lead by journalist/author James T. Bartlett. This dedicated group of crime sniffer-outers has already read as widely as Tori Telfer’s Lady Killers, covering historical, semi-forgotten, female, homicidal maniacs, all the way up to Michelle McNamara’s fantastic prequel to the actual capture of the Golden State Killer, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark.
In July, we’re going back 100 years to the horrific murders of dozens of members of the Osage Indian nation. When they discovered oil on their lands, their ensuing wealth made them targets — and we continued our tragic national tradition of taking from Native Americans what belonged to them. When the fledgling FBI is called in to right the wrongs, young J. Edgar finds himself in over his head. This is a complex web of crime that connects some of the darkest corners of the American experience.
Join us for David Grann’s Killers of the Flower Moon.
All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator – to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore.
You can get your tickets (and we’ll ship the book to you!) right HERE – or just come into the store and look for our book club display (near the book tunnel.) If you choose the online option (the one with shipping), please send a mailing addy to firstname.lastname@example.org
