Speaker Series: Eva Dillon
We are delighted to host Eva Dillon to discuss her new, Kirkus-starred memoir,Spies in the Family.This event is free for members and $5 for nonmembers.

Spies in the Familyis a true-life thriller and revealing memoir from the daughter of an American intelligence officer. At the height of Cold War tensions between the US and the USSR, the Americans had a secret weapona Soviet double agent who rose to the rank of general and passed intelligence which most likely averted a nuclear showdown. And yet this crucial historical chapterhas remained hidden in the shadowsuntil now. Reporting from the inside, Eva Dillon breaks the incredible story of her CIA officer father, his GRU asset, and their remarkable relationship in SPIES IN THE FAMILY: An American Spymaster, His Russian Crown Jewel, and the Friendship That Helped End the Cold War. Dillon delivers a riveting account that is part nail-biting spy thriller, part intimate family memoir. With concerns about Vladimir Putins intentions and aggressions making headlines daily, this stunning page-turner brims with chilling contemporary relevance.

Eva Dillon spent twenty-five years in the magazine publishing business, including stints at Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Glamour, The New Yorker, and as president of Readers Digest, U.S.  Dillon and her six siblings grew up moving around the world for her fathers CIA assignments from Berlin to Mexico City to Rome to New Delhi. A transplanted New Yorker now living in Charleston, she holds a bachelor's in Music from Virginia Commonwealth University.
