NPC Headliners Book Event: "Betrayal in Berlin" by Steve Vogel

October 10, 2019 6:30 PM

Location: Conference Rooms

Steve Vogel - Betrayal in BerlinAuthor and veteran journalist Steve Vogel, who reported for The Washington Post for more than two decades and covered everything from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the war in Afghanistan, will share his new book "Betrayal in Berlin: The True Story of the Cold War’s Most Audacious Espionage Operation," at a National Press Club Headliners book event at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 10.

In “Betrayal in Berlin,” Vogel tells the thrilling true-life story of the CIA’s bold and outlandish Cold War plan – code-named “Operation Gold” - to build a sophisticated tunnel into East Berlin to recover valuable intelligence right beneath the feet of the KGB and Soviet forces.

This event will take place in the Club’s Conference Rooms, and will feature a moderated discussion with the author, an audience question-and-answer session, and a book signing. Tickets cost $5 for members of the National Press Club and $10 for the general public.

Preordered books will be available for pickup and signing at the event. Attendees will also be able to purchase books at the door. Proceeds from the book sales benefit the National Press Club’s non-profit affiliate, The National Press Club Journalism Institute, so we kindly ask that you leave all outside books at home.

About the Author: Steve Vogel was a longtime reporter for the national staff of The Washington Post where he covered the federal government, focusing primarily on the military and veterans. During his tenure, Vogel covered the fall of the Berlin Wall, the first Gulf War, and US military operations in Somalia, Rwanda, and the Balkans. Vogel also covered the September 11 attack on the Pentagon, and the subsequent US-led invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq. His reporting on the war in Afghanistan was part of a collection of Post stories selected as a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2002.
