Henry Hemming: Our Man in New York
Henry Hemming - Our Man in New York - Wantage Literary Festival

Acclaimed espionage author Henry Hemming presents a gripping talk on how the British used ‘fake news’ to help bring America into World War 2. This true tale of the exploits of William Stephenson, sent by MI6 to be ‘our man in New York’ in 1940, explains how this spy’s work changed the course of the war – and history. Hemming, whose book has now been optioned by a major film company, has a fascinating personal connection to this story. Prepare to be enthralled!
