Stuck at home because of Omicron? Looking for new things to watch and listen to? Have I got a list for you!

For a start, I’d be delighted to have you join me at either of these upcoming events: 

Wednesday, January 12, 2021 I was so happy to hear that The Woman All Spies Fear is a finalist for YALSA’s Excellence in Nonfiction Award, and I’m excited to be part of a free online conversation with the other four finalists about nonfiction, writing, research, and why history matters. Register here with the host, SLJ, to watch the 1.00 pm ET panel (or to receive a link to it afterward).

Sunday, January 16, 2021 Join me at 12:30 pm ET for an online talk about Elizebeth Smith Friedman, hosted by the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau Country. I’ll be sharing some insights into both her remarkable code-breaking career and her fascinating marriage to William Friedman, who is sometimes called the “Godfather of the NSA.” Register here

Over the past few months, I’ve also recorded interviews about codes, spies, and Elizebeth Smith Friedman with some wonderful hosts. If you’re looking for something to listen to while you wash the dishes or make dinner or walk the dog, you can find our conversations here: 

Author, Can I Ask You? with Joni B. Mitchell

Wine, Women & Words with Diana Giovinazzo Tierney and Michele Leivas

On the Record with Tom O’Connor (starting at 4 minutes in)

They’re all terrific interviewers, and the first two shows have plenty more episodes available! Definitely worth checking out if you’ve got cabin fever.
