New Yorker staff writer David Grann, the No. 1 New York Times best-selling author of The Lost City of Z, visits Thurber House to discuss 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. In Killers of the Flower Moon, Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered. 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.
