We'll engage around the responsibilities of a citizen, public address, relational meetings, and more.

Join members of congregations and groups from across the Grand Rapids area as we seek to build something together that is strong, sustainable, and capable of making the change that our families deserve.

This is a learning and building opportunity. You don't have to read the book to join the conversation!

Plymouth Book Club - Killers of the Flower Moon

Monday, November 12, 7:00 p.m., in the lounge

The Plymouth Book Club meets to discuss Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann. This is a haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history. 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, the Osage rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, they began to be killed off. One Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, watched as her family was murdered. Her older sister was shot. Her mother was then slowly poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more Osage began to die under mysterious circumstances. Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. 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 Native Americans that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly riveting, but also emotionally devastating. Our books are available on the Book Club Table at Schuler Books with a 20% discount.
