David Grann

We are delighted to host this visit by bestselling author and New Yorker staff writer David Grann, here tonight with his compelling recent narrative history, Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI (Doubleday). This is a true story of oil, greed, the Osage people, theft, and injustice. Nothing new, it might be surmised - the American way, after all. Yet David Grann has unearthed startling, heretofore undisclosed information, which makes what happened then even more disturbing now.

“Quite simply, this is a remarkable book, by a remarkable author—an exhumation of a shockingly brutal series of historical murders, that I for one knew nothing about. Utterly original; completely compelling.” – Erik Larson.

Killers of the Flower Moon is a magnificent book—a riveting true story of greed, serial murder, and racial injustice that exposes an extremely disturbing episode of American History. David Grann is a terrific journalist, and this is maybe the best thing he’s ever written.” – Jon Krakauer.

David Grann’s other books include The Lost City of Z and The Devil and Sherlock Holmes.
