Tracy Walder, The Unexpected Spy: From the CIA to the FBI, My Secret Life …

October 26, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

The Unexpected Spy

Tra­cy Walder was recruit­ed to work for the CIA from the Uni­ver­si­ty of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia. On 9/11, she was track­ing ter­ror­ists with Pres­i­dent George W. Bush, Vice Pres­i­dent Dick Cheney, and Sec­re­tary of State Col­in Pow­ell look­ing over her shoul­der. Motivated to stop the new breed of ter­ror that war cre­at­ed, Walder flew over­seas under an alias identity, tasked with debriefing al-Qaeda’s top men who swore they’d nev­er speak to a woman. Ultimately, she earned their trust and gain­ed crit­i­cal and life-sav­ing infor­ma­tion. The Unex­pect­ed Spy is a pow­er­ful mem­oir about a woman who established a career in a male-dom­i­nat­ed field, and the enduring life lessons she learned from the experience.

In conversation with Shelley Sackett, attorney, freelance journalist, and former editor of the Jewish Journal.
