Event

Former CIA Spy Amaryllis Fox
Fans of Homeland,and espionage stories in general, please take note: being a spy, and a spy who is a brilliant young woman, is one dangerous occupation. Thrilling and at times simply unbelievable for its jawdropping audacity, Amaryllis Fox's memoir, Life Undercover: Coming of Age in the CIA, is nonfiction. It is not a fictional television show, but it could be one.

When Amaryllis Fox was an undergraduate student at Oxford University, her friend and mentor, Daniel Pearl, was kidnapped and ferociously murdered by terrorists. This horror mobilized her to pursue a degree in Foreign Service at Georgetown-- where she created an algorithm that predicted the creation of terrorist cells any place in the world.  Experts took note, and the next thing she knew, the CIA recruited her at 21.

After counter-terrorism training, learning how to wriggle out of handcuffs while imprisoned in the trunk of a car, acquiring the fine art of staying alive under torture, and digesting the best ways to commit suicide in case of enemy captivity, Fox infiltrated terrorist cells in some of the most dangerous areas of the world, including the Middle East and Asia. Amaryllis Fox proves that truth can be stranger--and more thrilling--than fiction.

Writers Bloc thanks New Roads School for their gracious partnership in this program. We couldn't do it without them. 

Moderator to be announced.
