December 2, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
**Please note that we are having a Nov/Dec meeting of the NF book club; in January we will return to our usual 4th Saturday of the month.
This month, we will discuss Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann.
In the 1920s, after oil was discovered beneath their land, members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma became the richest people per capita in the world. Then, members of the Osage tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances. As the death toll climbed to more than 24, the FBI took up the case. Director Hoover turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to unravel the mystery. White’s undercover team, including one of the only American Indian agents in the bureau, worked with the Osage people to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history. In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits this shocking series of murders and the intricacies of the investigation that followed. (summary from DavidGrann.com)

Our discussion will be held in a hybrid format. The host will be in person at the BFL, while some members will join over zoom. You are welcome to join either way. For zoom, please register here to receive the meeting details:
