Book Discussion Group

Meetings suspended due to COVID, will resume in warmer weather

We were fortunate to be able to meet outdoors well into the fall, but since the Tenney Library has had to close to social gatherings, our book discussions have been postponed until either the pandemic wanes or warmer weather returns.  Meanwhile, be sure to read our pending discussion choice,  Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann, so you’ll be ready for our first meeting back.

Once we resume in-person meetings, the group meets on the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM.

Please bring a mask to wear inside the library.

““[C]lose to impeccable. It’s confident, fluid in its dynamics, light on its feet. . . . The crime story it tells is appalling, and stocked with authentic heroes and villains. It will make you cringe at man’s inhumanity to man.”
The New York Times

“A masterful work of literary journalism crafted with the urgency of a mystery. . . . Contained within Grann’s mesmerizing storytelling lies something more than a brisk, satisfying read. Killers of the Flower Moon offers up the Osage killings as emblematic of America’s relationship with its indigenous peoples and the ‘culture of killing’ that has forever marred that tie.”
The Boston Globe

www.randomhouse-1“Disturbing and riveting. . . . Grann has proved himself a master of spinning delicious, many-layered mysteries that also happen to be true. . . . It will sear your soul.”
—Dave Eggers, New York Times Book Review

“A marvel of detective-like research and narrative verve.”
Financial Times

“A master of the detective form. . . . Killers is something rather deep and not easily forgotten.”
Wall St. Journal

Copies of the book are available through interlibrary loan from the library.  We look forward to having you join us!
