In December, we will discuss the nonfiction book, KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the F.B.I., By David Grann. A New York Times book review reads in part: “Thus, when Tom White and his men solve the crime, and the mastermind behind the murders is revealed, you will not see it coming. You will feel that familiar thrill at having been successfully misdirected, but then there are about 70 pages left in the book. And in these last pages, Grann takes what was already a fascinating and disciplined recording of a forgotten chapter in American history, and with the help of contemporary Osage tribe members, he illuminates a sickening conspiracy that goes far deeper than those four years of horror. It will sear your soul. Among the towering thefts and crimes visited upon the native peoples of the continent, what was done to the Osage must rank among the most depraved and ignoble. … History, Grann writes in this shattering book, is a merciless judge.”

The January 2019 fiction book is Less, by Andrew Sean Greer.
