For more than 35 years, the Weinstein JCC has celebrated Jewish books and authors at its annual Book Fair. The goal of this event is to educate the community about Jewish literature and to stimulate discussion and thought regarding current Jewish issues, history, philosophy, literature and poetry.
Co-hosted by the Weinstein 5400 Club
Tracy Walder, The Unexpected Spy
Tracy Walder, a Jewish-American woman, was recruited by the CIA out of college. With the events of 9/11, Walder found herself tracking terrorists with President George Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Colin Powell looking over her shoulder.
She successfully earned the trust of al-Qaeda’s top men, Jihadists who swore they’d never speak to a woman. The Unexpected Spy is a powerful memoir about a woman who made a career in a male-dominated field and what she’s taken away from it now.
Free and open to the community.
