The Cold War Museum, in cooperation with Old Bust Head Brewing Company, invites you to attend a presentation by former New York Times reporter Howard Blum on In the Enemy’s House: The Secret Saga of the FBI Agent and the Code Breaker Who Caught the Russian Spies
Howard Blum, a former New York Times reporter and author of the recently released book In the Enemy’s House, will present the extraordinary story of the unlikely teamwork of an unorthodox FBI agent and a genius codebreaker at Arlington Hall to identify and bring down the atomic spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg and their networks. One of the innovations in this accounting of the Rosenberg case is documentation of not only the US team’s thinking and false starts but also the parallel thinking and fears of the KGB spy handlers of the Rosenbergs who suspected that the Americans were closing in. Blum draws on his interviews with family members; the previously inaccessible notebooks of Meredith Gardner, the Arlington Hall codebreaker; and now-unclassified government materials.
Time: 1:00 PM. (Arrival at the brewery: 12:30-1:00 PM)
Cost: $25, including the presentation; a $7 coupon toward a craft beer draft, Kombucha or other drink; a $10 contribution to the Cold War Museum; and special access to the Museum (next door) for event participants following the presentation.
TICKETS AT THE DOOR, IF AVAILABLE, WILL BE $35.
