1:00pm
Host is Frann Shermet Read With League. "Killers of the Flower Moon;the Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI" by David Grann (Doubleday, Apr. 2017) 352 pp. David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood; 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. For more information please contact Penny Brown 714-828-4667 or LibraryPRB@aol.com.

Host is Paula Ames. Read With League. "The Rooster Bar" by John Grisham (Doubleday, Oct. 2017) 465pp. Third-year law students realize they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a third-tier, for-profit law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. Then they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans. Grisham's newest legal thriller takes you inside a law firm that's on shaky ground. Reviewer is Paula Ames. For more information please contact Penny Brown 714-828-4667 or LibraryPRB@aol.com.
