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, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe.
Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances.
In this last remnant of the Wild West–where oilmen like J. P. Getty made their fortunes and where desperadoes like Al Spencer, the -Phantom Terror, – roamed–many of those who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered. As the death toll climbed to more than twenty-four, the FBI took up the case. It was one of the organization’s first major homicide investigations and the bureau badly bungled the case. In desperation, the young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to unravel the mystery. White put together an undercover team, including one of the only American Indian agents in the bureau. The agents infiltrated the region, struggling to adopt the latest techniques of detection. Together with the Osage they began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history.
In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits 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. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly compelling, but also emotionally devastating.

Matilda, a twelfth-century Empress of the Holy Roman Empire and daughter of Henry I, is twenty-four years old and a widow. She returns to inherit her father’s double realm of England and Normandy, but is promptly married against her will to Geoffrey, a minor continental nobleman. Absent from England at the time of her father’s death, Matilda loses her throne to her cousin, Stephen, despite their ongoing and secret love affair.
For almost twenty years, anarchy reigns throughout the empire, and their illicit passion fluctuates between hatred and obsession. The only hope is the Empress’ growing faith and their illegitimate son, whose rightful claim to the English throne could finally end the bloody, endless war.
In the vein of Philippa Gregory’s The Other Boleyn Girl, Matilda Empress illuminates the real history of the early English monarchs, while exploring what is at stake when a strong woman at the center of great upheaval refuses to play by the rules laid out for her.

As part of National Adoption awareness Month, Mary Anna King to discuss and sign, “Bastards: A Memoir,” this Thursday at 6:30pm.
Mary Hall spent her early childhood living in poverty in Camden, New Jersey, with her older brother Jacob and parents who she describes as being "great at making babies but not so great at holding on to them." After her father abandons them, they become part of a commune of single mothers living in a low income complex. Finding herself unable to care for the only daughter left at home, Mary’s mother sends her to live with her grandparents in Oklahoma City who have also been raising a younger sister Rebecca.
Because Mary was adopted by her grandparents, Mary’s mother Peggy is legally her sister while her brother Jacob becomes legally her nephew. Living in Oklahoma City, Mary gets a new name and a new life but she is haunted by the past, by the baby sisters she is sure will come looking for her, by the mother she left behind and the father who left her.
Mary is a college student when her sisters start to get back in touch, with each subsequent reunion her family slowly comes together. Moving, haunting, at times wickedly funny, Bastards is about one woman’s search for her family and herself.

Hey there, rock-n-rollers! Don’t forget- this Wednesday we welcome Oklahoma author Greg Renoff as he discusses and signs his book, “Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal.” Join us at 6:30pm for a great time!
After years of playing gigs everywhere from suburban backyards to dive bars, Van Halen led by frontman extraordinaire David Lee Roth and guitar virtuoso Edward Van Halen had the songs, the swagger, and the talent to turn the rock world on its ear. The quartet s classic 1978 debut, “Van Halen,” sold more than a million copies within months of release and rocketed the band to the stratosphere of rock success. On tour, Van Halen s high-energy show wowed audiences and prompted headlining acts like Black Sabbath to concede that they d been blown off the stage. By the year s end, Van Halen had established themselves as superstars and reinvigorated heavy metal in the process.
Based on more than 230 original interviews including with former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and power players like Pete Angelus, Marshall Berle, Donn Landee, Ted Templeman, and Neil Zlozower “Van Halen Rising” reveals the untold story of how these rock legends made the unlikely journey from Pasadena, California, to the worldwide stage.”
