Wren Readers: A Book Discussion with Barbara Reynolds

ID : 744   
« back to classes page
Join me for a discussion of Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI.  In the 1920s, the Osage tribe negotiated the mineral rights for their corner of Oklahoma, creating enormous wealth from oil.  And that’s when they started dying.  Execution-style shootings, poisonings, and exploding houses resulted in two dozen deaths, while private eyes and undercover operatives scoured the territory for clues.  J. Edgar Hoover’s investigation – which he would leverage to enhance both the prestige and power of his fledgling FBI - began to overtake even the town’s most respected leaders.
