More than ten thousand women served as codebreakers during World War II. While their brothers and boyfriends took up arms, these women moved to Washington, D.C. and learned the meticulous work of codebreaking. Their efforts shortened the war and saved countless lives, but a strict vow of secrecy nearly erased their efforts from history—until now. Author Liza Mundy will discuss and read from her new book Code Girls. Mundy is the New York Times bestselling author of The Richer Sex: How the New Majority of Female Breadwinners Is Transforming Sex, Love and Family and Michelle: A Biography. This event is presented with Bookmarks.
