Legacy Series Presentation

What would you have done if, as a 1940s female college student, you received an invitation to assist in the war effort under hush-hush conditions? More than 10,000 young women headed the call. Their efforts provided key intelligence that played a crucial part in numerous battles such as Midway. Ultimately, their work helped shorten the war and saved countless lives.

Liza Mundy, author of Code Girls and Legacy Series Presentation speakerHear award-winning reporter and New York Times best-selling author Liza Mundy speak about her book Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II at the Legacy Series Presentation on Friday, Jan. 25, from 12:45 to 2 p.m. Mundy is the author of several books, including Michelle: A Biography about former First Lady Michelle Obama, and The Richer Sex: How the New Majority of Female Breadwinners Is Transforming Sex, Love and Family.

This featured event is a presentation of the Committee on Special Issues of National & State Importance. A separate fee applies, which includes lunch.
