Sunday Evening Lecture – Ben Coes – “Bloody Sunday” at La Grua
September 9 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Don’t miss Ben Coes on Sunday, September 9, at 5:00 in the La Grua Center. A NYTimes best-selling author, Ben has been likened to John le Carre and Tom Clancy. He will talk about his latest novel Bloody Sunday, an international espionage thriller, a genre he has re-defined. Fans are hooked on Dewey Andreas – Delta Force, CIA spy, and Tier-One NOC covert operative – who appears in his thrillers to solve frighteningly realistic international incidents. Coes calls his plots reality-based that draw from completely possible scenarios that could occur, often confidentially, in the U.S. government, and some of his characters are straight from the headlines.
Coes brings one-of-a-kind knowledge to the genre of political espionage. A former special forces operative himself, he worked at the White House under President Ronald Reagan and for President George H.W. Bush during the Gulf War. Coes has also been a speech writer for U.S. Secretary of Energy James P. Watkins and for international financier T. Boone Pickens. Coes’ fans include Mitt Romney for whom he served as campaign manager when he was running for governor of Massachusetts.
Parking for the La Grua Center is in the main lot of Stonington Commons 32 Water St., Stonington. This event is free and open to the public.
