First Person: Matti Friedman in Conversation with Lucette Lagnado. Friedman’s new book, “Spies of No Country: Secret Lives at the Birth of Israel” tells the unknown story of four of Israel’s first spies. Recruited by a rag-tag outfit called the Arab Section before the 1948 War of Independence, they assumed Arab identities to gather intelligence and carry out sabotage and assassinations. At the height of the war the spies posed as refugees fleeing the fighting, reached Beirut, and set up what became Israel’s first foreign intelligence station. In a wide-ranging First Person conversation, Matti Friedman speaks with author Lucette Lagnado (“The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit”) about his journalism career, researching and writing his new book, and what Spies of No Country reveals about Israel in the 20th and 21st centuries. Ticket prices: $15 general; $12 seniors; $10 CJH members and students. Buy online at or call 800-838-3006.
