You can’t visit the Spy Museum right now, but we can tell you some of our favorite stories about the spies who live on in our Spies & Spymasters gallery and why not do it over a cocktail? Join us online for a virtual happy hour.
This evening, after a brief overview of some of our favorite women spies, deceptive analysis expert Lena Sisco, who’s featured in our Sisterhood of Spies and License to Thrill exhibit films, will share her experiences as a former Department of Defense certified military interrogator and Naval Human Intelligence Officer who served in the Global War on Terror interrogating members of al Qaida and Taliban shortly after 9/11 at Camp Delta in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Sisco is the founder of her own company The Congruency Group which trains people in body language and detecting deception. She’ll tell you tales from an intense career and how you can apply some of her skills in your own life: Who really ate the last piece of candy from the quarantine stash? You need to know!
Need cocktail ideas? Bartender Tamara from Kaliwa at the Wharf will be shaking up a cocktail and sharing the recipe for a drink that will perk up your pandemic blues.
Drink: “Two Loves" inspired by Tamara’s favorite spy, Josephine Baker.
