David Stokes - The Shooting Salvationist

Wednesday, September 14, 2011 - 7:00pm

David Stokes skillfully explores the events leading up to one of the most intriguing, yet largely forgotten, crime stories in America's history. Set during the post-World War I oil boom, it culminates in a courtroom drama pitting powerful lawyers against each other with the life of a wildly popular--and equally loathed--religious leader (J. Frank Norris) hanging in the balance.
