Virtual Book Discussion: The Woman who Smashed Codes by Jason Fagone

Virtual Book Discussion: The Woman who Smashed Codes: a True Story of Love, Spies, and the Unlikely Heroine who Outwitted America's Enemies by Jason Fagone
Tuesday February 9, 7:00-8:00pm
Available in our catalog in print or audiobook or as an ebook on Overdrive/Libby and Hoopla.
The story of Elizabeth Smith, one of the founders of modern code breaking, reads like an espionage thriller. From World War I to the Cold War, her role in intercepting and decoding messages, to catching gangsters and smugglers and exposing a Nazi spy ring, is riveting. She and her husband, William Friedman, were important parts of American national security history.

Led by Linda Goldberg. Please email lgoldberg@minlib.net for the Zoom link to join.

The title for our March discussion is The Mystery of Mrs. Christie by Marie Benedict.
