with Lea Carpenter

Once told “women don’t write espionage,” novelist Lea Carpenter set out to determine if that was true and, if so, why? Or at least why there are so many misperceptions about women in the genre and about women in the real world of the international intelligence services. Carpenter and former CIA Director Porter Goss will discuss these questions and the history of spies in literature, film, and television, as well as other enduring misconceptions about the world of intelligence.
