Takoma Park author to debut his first nonfiction work

Join us on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the library for a discussion of Yudhijit’s Bhattacharjee’s book The Spy Who Couldn’t Spell – A Dyslexic Traitor, an Unbreakable Code, and the FBI’s Hunt for America’s Stolen Secrets.

Bhattacharjee’s book has been widely praised by reviewers. Publisher’s Weekly noted that “readers…will thoroughly enjoy this fastmoving account of a failed spy who, despite his incompetence, easily filched thousands of secrets.” And from Kirkus Reviews: “The author offers a compellingly seedy portrait of Regan, motivated to contemplate treason due to debt, career stagnation, and marital malaise…a well-written…tale of thwarted amateur treason underscoring the disturbing vulnerability of today’s intelligence systems.”

This program is funded by the Friends of the Takoma Park Maryland Library. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing at the program.
