Lecture by Linda Matchett

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.4.1″ text_font_size=”20px”]Spies have always fascinated us, and the iconic image of a glamourous woman using her wiles to extract secrets from enemies is particularly compelling. However, the reality of how thousands of female operatives served extends far beyond the stereotype. Listen to first-hand, hair-raising accounts about the world-wide exploits of these stalwart women.

Linda Shenton Matchett writes about ordinary people who did extraordinary things in days gone by. She is a volunteer docent and archivist at the Wright Museum of World War II and a trustee for her local public library.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
