Boca Reads Virtual Book Club: Madame Fourcade's Secret War, by Lynne Olson
Thursday, February 9, 2023
Boca Reads is a community reading initiative in partnership with Festival of the Arts Boca. Its purpose is to connect people through a shared reading experience and discussion. Join us as we read "Madame Fourcade’s Secret War: The Daring Young Woman Who Led France’s Largest Spy Network Against Hitler" by Lynne Olson. In 1941, Marie-Madeleine Fourcade, a thirty-one-year-old Frenchwoman and mother of two, became leader of a vast Resistance intelligence organization in France -- the only woman to emerge as a chef de résistance during the war. Strong-willed, independent, and a lifelong rebel against her country’s conservative, patriarchal society, Fourcade was temperamentally made for the job. This bestseller is "fast-paced and impressively researched." Joining this book club will prepare you for Lynne Olson’s performance at the Festival of the Arts Boca on 3/6/23 at the Mizner Park Amphitheater.
