|Brown Bag Book Club to Meet April 19|
Clifton Forge, VA (April 9, 2018) - The Clifton Forge Public Libraryâs Brown Bag Book Club will meet on Thursday, April 19. The group will discuss âKillers of the Flower Moonâ written by David Grann.
The Amazon Editors' Pick for the Best Book of 2017 states, âIn the 1920s, the Osage found themselves in a unique position among Native Americans tribes. As other tribal lands were parceled out in an effort by the government to encourage dissolution and assimilation of both lands and culture, the Osage negotiated to maintain the mineral rights for their corner of Oklahoma, creating a kind of âunderground reservation.â It proved a savvy move; soon countless oil rigs punctured the dusty landscape, making the Osage very rich. And that's when they started dying.â
Grann ârevisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. 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.â
âNew York Timesâ bestselling author Erik Larson says, âQuite simply, this is a remarkable book, by a remarkable authorâan exhumation of a shockingly brutal series of historical murders, that I for one knew nothing about. Utterly original; completely compelling.â
A âNew York Timesâ bestseller, âKillers of the Flower Moonâ has also been named a best book of the year by several publications, including the âWall Street Journal,â âTime,â âNewsday,â Smithsonian,â and the âLibrary Journal.â
The Brown Bag Book Club meets from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., in the Libraryâs Michael Armstrong Community Room.
New members are always welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring a friend and to bring a lunch. Dessert will be provided.
