Audience: Adults/ Older Adults

Categories: Book Club/Discussion, History/Genealogy

This month we will be reading The Spy and the Traitor: The Greatest Espionage Story of the Cold War by Ben Macintyre.  Request a physical copy here or place a hold on the ebook or eaudiobook on the Libby library app.  Sign into the app with your library card. "Oleg Gordievsky was a spy like no other. The product of a KGB family and the best Soviet institutions, the savvy, sophisticated Russian eventually saw the lies and terror of the regime for what they were. His KGB career eventually brought him to the highest post in the KGB's London station--but throughout that time he was secretly working for MI6, the British intelligence service. Ben Macintyre has produced a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, a thrilling tale of impossibly high stakes and one man's brave gamble on his belief in democracy and freedom."--Jacket. Register in advance for this meeting:  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
