Travel back to the dark days of the Cold War with biographer and journalist Douglas Wissing to explore the fascinating life of covert CIA officer and top Agency official Benjamin C. Evans.

For over twenty years, Ben Evans navigated the world of espionage, from running secret agents in revolution-era Cuba to clandestinely directing a powerful CIA front organization operating across Asia. As one of the Agency’s top 7th-floor executives, Evans managed myriad CIA secrets, including coups, spy-war, counterintelligence, and the Watergate and Family Jewels scandals. Operating in the shadows, Evans was one of the most powerful U.S. officials that you never heard of.

This program is brought to you with support from OneAmerica Financial Partners, a national provider in the insurance and financial services marketplace.

Registration closes 2 hours prior to the start of the program.
