Final 2019 One Book, One City selection spotlights American hero

Post Date:08/09/2019

The Keller Public Library's 2019 One Book, One City program welcomes a third and final author this fall as area readers are invited to delve into the incredible true story of Elizabeth Smith Friedman, who along with her husband invented the modern science of cryptology in the pursuit of winning World War II and holds distinction as the first woman to lead a U.S. code-breaking organization.

Two events in September will feature author and journalist Jason Fagone, focused on his bestselling nonfiction "The Woman Who Smashed Codes: A True Story of Love, Spies, and the Unlikely Heroine Who Outwitted America's Enemies." 

This community-wide book program has two opportunities to participate. Fagone will host a free talk and book signing at 3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5 at the Keller Public Library, 640 Johnson Road. At 6 p.m. that evening, fans are invited to Dinner with the Author at The Bowden Event Center, 1775 Keller Pkwy. Prepaid tickets to the dinner are available now for $40 from the Friends of the Keller Library.
