The National Arts Club presents bestselling author Scott Anderson in conversation.
From the bestselling author of Lawrence in Arabia, The Quiet Americans is a gripping history of the early years of the Cold War, as seen through the lives of four CIA spies, each of whom ran covert operations across the globe. But time and again their efforts went awry, thwarted by ideological rigidity at the highest levels of the government – and more profoundly, the decision to abandon American ideals.
Anderson, a veteran war correspondent, is a contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and a New York Times Notable Book. He discusses his book with Patrick Radden Keefe, a staff writer at The New Yorker and the author of the recent bestseller Say Nothing.Buy tickets/get more info now
