Briefing

Virginia Hall was a trailblazing spy. She didn’t let a hunting accident which robbed her of a leg slow her down. A Baltimorean with an interest in foreign languages and the gumption to overcome obstacles both physical and cultural, Hall operated courageously behind enemy lines in occupied France during World War II. She coordinated French Resistance efforts and put her life on the line first as an agent for the English Special Operations Executive and then with the US Office of Strategic Services. Award-winning author Sonia Purnell’s new book A Woman of No Importance: The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II takes a fresh look at Hall’s espionage activities and how they changed the course of the conflict. And who better to interview Purnell about Virginia Hall than another trailblazing spy: Jonna Mendez, former CIA chief of disguise and co-author of Moscow Rules.

Guests will have a chance to see some Virginia Hall artifacts from the Museum’s collection. 

New York Times bestseller A Woman of No Importance and Moscow Rules by Jonna Mendez will be available for sale and signing at the event.
