The story of the oil industry’s spring to life in Oklahoma is riddled with success and tragedy, booms and busts. “The Life of Boom and Bust Oil Towns in Payne County” will take you every step of the way, from the first spewing oil geyser, to the sudden disappearance of “black gold.” The exhibit will be on display at the Stillwater History Museum from March 8th – May 31st, then it will be headed to the Yale Public Library for display.

All Month Long:

"One Book, One Community: Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI"

Various Times, Stillwater Public Library, 1107 S Duck St. Over four years in the early 1920s, Osage members were dying one by one, most under suspicious circumstances. This series of murders, known as the “Reign of Terror,” makes up one of the darkest periods of Oklahoma history. The story of these murders is the subject of the Stillwater Public Library’s ninth community-wide read, “One Book, One Community: Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI.” The free six week series begins March 1 and culminates with a visit from author David Grann on April 12. Grann’s book was a finalist for the National Book Award and was named Amazon’s best book of the year. It is being adapted for a film directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Participants in the series will receive a free copy of the book when they sign-up for one of 23 small group discussions held throughout the community. Many of these discussions are scheduled very early in the series. Sign-up for book discussions and distribution of the free books will begin at the March 1 kick-off. Sign-up and pick-up at the library Help Desk begins the following day. The registration for the free April 12 finale with Grann will also begin at the kick-off. Library staff will provide a password at each of the series’ programs and book discussions. The password allows local participants to make an online reservation for the author event prior to open registration, which begins April 1. Library staff will assist participants who do not use a computer. In addition to the kick-off and author event, the library and its partners are offering seven programs related to different aspects of the book. Many of the programs focus on Osage topics and are being led by members of the Nation. For more information, visit the series website at http://library.stillwater.org/flowermoon.php or contact the Help Desk at (405) 372-3633 x8106.
