We'll discuss the bestseller everyone's been talking about: Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth Of the FBI by David Grann. This book tells the appalling story of how the Osage Indians, driven from their lands in Kansas to a rocky area of Oklahoma, became wealthy from the discovery of oil beneath their land. The government assigned white "guardians" who had access to their money. . . and then the Indians began to be mysteriously murdered, one by one.

Anyone is invited to attend, and refreshments will be served.  For more information, please contact Jackie Greene, Reference Librarian, at 936.442.7728, ext. 6314; or at jgreene@countylibrary.org

Come to our discussion of Doug Mack's The Not-Quite States of America: Dispatches from the Territories and Other Far-Flung Outposts of the USA. We all know that America has 50 states but how many of us are aware of the various U.S. territories and their 4 million people?  The author traveled to each and, through his book, enlightens us on the history, culture, and current situation of these oft-overlooked territories.

Anyone is invited to attend and enjoy the refreshments and ideas of like-minded readers.  For more information, please contact Jackie Greene, Reference Librarian, at 936.442.7728, ext. 6314; or at jgreene@countylibrary.org

Thursday, Jul. 19, 1:00
In I Was Told to Come Alone: My Journey Behind the Lines of Jihad, author Souad Mekhennet traces her journey from points in Europe where the 9/11 attacks were fomented to the Turkish-Syria border and back to Europe where terror has come to the heart of Western civilization. This fascinating account by a reporter of the Washington Post takes the reader into places where not many journalists have gained access, much less a Muslim woman such as Mekhennet.

Come enjoy the discussion---it's certain to be an interesting one!  Anyone is welcome to attend and refreshments will be served.  For more information, contact Jackie Greene, Reference Librarian, at 936.442.7728, ext. 6314; or at jgreene@countylibrary.org
