Anyone out there North of Salt Lake who really loves to read? If so, come join me in sharing the books you love, finding new books to love, and probably sometimes hating a book or two. Join now for monthly meetings to discuss previously agreed upon titles in locations that we love. Perhaps a nice chat at the coffee house or local park? All suggestions welcome. I love reading and would love some new friends to read and chat with!
When George Washington beat a hasty retreat from New York City in August 1776, many thought the American Revolution might soon be over. Instead, Washington rallied—thanks in large part to a little-known, top-secret group called the Culper Spy Ring. He realized that he couldn’t defeat the British with military might, so he recruited a sophisticated and deeply secretive intelligence network to infiltrate New York.
Drawing on extensive research, Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger have offered fascinating portraits of these spies: a reserved Quaker merchant, a tavern keeper, a brash young longshoreman, a curmudgeonly Long Island bachelor, a coffeehouse owner, and a mysterious woman. Long unrecognized, the secret six are finally receiving their due among the pantheon of American heroes.
