Event Description

Join us for this signature event celebrating AHML's 2020 One Book, One Village selection. Author Lara Prescott will join us for a very special virtual program to share the story behind her New York Times best selling debut novel The Secrets We Kept.  Charismatic and brilliant, Prescott is sure to be compelling. A Q&A session with the author will follow her presentation.

About the Book

The Secrets We Kept is a thrilling tale of secretaries turned spies, of love, duty, and sacrifice. Inspired by the CIA plot to infiltrate the hearts of Soviet Russia, not with propaganda, but with the greatest love story of the 20th century: Doctor Zhivago. From Moscow and the Gulag to D.C. and Paris, The Secrets We Kept captures a watershed moment in the history of literature. Told with soaring emotional intensity and captivating historical detail, and centered on the belief that a piece of art can change the world. 

An instant New York Times bestseller and a Hello Sunshine x Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick, The Secrets We Kept is Lara’s debut novel. It will be translated into over 30 languages and is set to be adapted for television.

About the Author

Lara received her MFA from the Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas. She studied political science at American University in Washington, D.C. and international development in Namibia and South Africa. Prior to writing fiction, Lara worked as a political campaign consultant.
