Adult Book Discussion Group (The Bookmark)

  • The Bookmark 9 Public Square Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)

Join us for the library's book discussion group at the Bookmark!

The discussion group meets on the third Tuesday of most months. At this meeting, we will be discussing KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON by David Grann. Books are available by the library's main circulation desk.

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, the Osage rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe.

Then, one by one, they began to be killed off. One Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, watched as her family was murdered. Her older sister was shot. Her mother was then slowly poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more Osage began to die under mysterious circumstances.

 

Brenda Pavnica, Adult Services Department Head, will lead the discussion. Questions? (317) 398-7121 ext. 222 or bpavnica@sscpl.lib.in.us.
