Spymistresses: The Story of Allied Women Spies of WWII

March 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Please join Wilton Library on Wednesday, March 1 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for unique insight into Allied women spies in WWII. Spies belong to a special group of people with flexible identities, elastic morals and what has been referred to by some as situational ethics. Many take dangerous risks, complete their missions, and live to tell the tale while others don’t. During WWII, several women risked their lives to work within enemy territory to uncover secrets. Some were professionally trained, and others were simply masters of intrigue and deception. They covertly served the Allies and made significant contributions to the war. Learn about some of these women who worked in the European and Pacific theaters of the war.

John Cilio has been telling the stories of history for over a decade. He is a skilled historian with a collection of 15,000 WWII photos and their press releases. He has published seven books ranging from women working in WWII and their impact on today’s business world to the history of Cessna aircraft.

Registration required. Please register online.  For more information, email Andrea Sato.
