Henry Hemming

Our Man in New York

Date: Friday 20th September 2019
Venue: Public Hall
Time: 2pm
Tickets: £10 (Students: £8)

The best-selling author of M: Maxwell Knight – MI5’s Greatest Spymaster, tells the story of a propaganda campaign like no other: the covert British operation to manipulate American public opinion and bring America into the Second World War.

Henry Hemming will share for the first time riveting facts about MI6’s plans to secure aid for Britain and ‘organise’ American public opinion, using access to hitherto private and classified documents, including the diaries of his own grandparents, and the work of William Stephenson, whose unique brilliance and daring work changed the course of history.
