Virtual Event – Dennis McAuliffe

January 28, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Magic City Books is proud to welcome Dennis McAuliffe, author of The Deaths of Sybil Bolton, for a virtual event in celebration of the reissue of his book with a new introduction by David Grann.

Journalist Dennis McAuliffe Jr. grew up believing that his Osage Indian grandmother, Sybil Bolton, had died an early death in 1925 from kidney disease. It was only by chance that he learned the real cause was a gunshot wound, and that her murder may well have been engineered by his own grandfather. As McAuliffe peeled away layers of suppressed history, he learned that Sybil was a victim of the “Osage Reign of Terror”–a systematic killing spree in the 1920s when white men descended upon the oil-rich Osage reservation to court, marry, and murder Native women to gain control of their money. Previously published as Bloodlands, The Deaths of Sybil Bolton is part murder mystery, part family memoir, and part spiritual journey.

This free event will be hosted on the Zoom platform and Facebook Live. To register in advance for the event visit: https://magiccitybooks.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_7Vyw5Tm6SrOj-cZpfzBgdw.
