AM Page Turners: A Woman of No Importance

AM Page Turners: A Woman of No Importance In-Person

Join us for a discussion of A Woman of No Importance:The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II (2019, nonfiction) by Sonia Purnell (352 pages, 4.15/5 on Goodreads). 

Virginia Hall was one of the greatest spies in American history, yet her story remains untold. Just as she did in Clementine, Sonia Purnell uncovers the captivating story of a powerful, influential, yet shockingly overlooked heroine of the Second World War. At a time when sending female secret agents into enemy territory was still strictly forbidden, Virginia Hall came to be known as the "Madonna of the Resistance," coordinating a network of spies to blow up bridges, report on German troop movements, arrange equipment drops for Resistance agents, and recruit and train guerilla fighters. 

Copies of the book will be distributed at the previous meeting and, afterward, are available by visiting the front desk at either Centerville or Woodbourne Library. The title is available in Regular Print, Large Print, eBook and eAudio. No registration is necessary, but participants are encouraged to read the book prior to attending the discussion.
