Join us on Wednesday, January 15, to discuss An Officer and a Spy by Robert Harris.

Alfred Dreyfus has been convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment on a far-off island. Georges Picquart initially believes in Dreyfus’s guilt, but when he is promoted to head up the French counter-espionage agency, Picquart finds evidence that Dreyfus is innocent and a spy remains at large in the military.  A gripping combination of spy, detective and court room genres.
