Working undercover, Michele Rigby Assad has operated in some of the most treacherous areas throughout the Middle East. Trained as a CIA counterterrorism specialist, Assad served her country for ten years, leading some of the most highly skilled operatives on the planet. The threats were real. The missions were perilous and the hazards of leading a double life in Iraq and other secret Middle Eastern locations were enormous. Now with her new book, Breaking Cover, she is able to share her covert life and the opportunities it presented to her from protecting US national security to assisting people persecuted for their religious beliefs. Join Assad for a discussion of her former double life and the dramatic experiences that life in the CIA’s directorate of operations offered her.
Pre-registered guests will be entered into a drawing to experience the Spy Museum’s immersive adventure Operation Spy with Assad before the program on the 22nd. Winners will be able to bring one guest each.
Breaking Cover will be available for sale and signing at the event.
