Book and Film Discussion Series : Spring 2012

Spring 2012 : The Season of the Spy
Join us for discussions about the lives, times, and exploits of spies and the role of espionage in fiction and film.  Throughout the series, we'll be dissecting labyrinthine plots and exploring the historical periods that made our selected titles so popular.  We'll also be asking you to share observations about why spy-centered books and movies continue to star on must-read or must-see lists in our contemporary but no less complicated times.
