About David Grann:

David Grann is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, an award-winning staff writer at The New Yorker magazine, and a popular speaker. His book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI documented one of the most sinister crimes and racial injustices in American history. Described by Dave Eggers in the New York Times Book Review as a “riveting” work that will “sear your soul,” Killers of the Flower Moon was a finalist for the National Book Award and a winner of the Edgar Allen Poe Award for best true crime book. A #1 New York Times bestseller, Killers of the Flower Moon was named one of the best books of the year by the Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Time, Entertainment Weekly, and other publications. Amazon named it the single best book of the year, and so did Shelf Awareness. The story has also been adapted into a major motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone, and Robert De Niro, which will be released in 2022.
