Bestselling author Kati Marton discusses her new true-life thriller Enemies of the People: My Family’s Journey to America on Tuesday, October 27, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
After obtaining secret police files detailing her family’s activities in Budapest during Nazi and Communist regimes, Marton discovered terrifying truths: secret love affairs, betrayals inside the family circle, and brutalities alongside acts of stunning courage - and, above all, deep family love. Based on reports and her own interviews, she reveals how her parents - pawns in the Cold War between Washington and Moscow - were betrayed by friends and colleagues, even their babysitter, and eventually imprisoned.
Marton is an award-winning former correspondent for NPR and ABC News. She is the author of Hidden Power: Presidential Marriages That Shaped Our History, a New York Times bestseller.
