  • Back by popular demand! The Museum of Coastal Carolina is pleased to announce that Martha “Marti” Peterson, author of “The Widow Spy,” will speak at the Museum on July 10th at 6 p.m.

    Ms. Peterson will discuss her exclusive firsthand account of being a Cold War spy in Moscow, Russia. She was one of the first women to be assigned to Moscow, a very difficult operational environment. Her story begins in Laos during the Vietnam War where she accompanied her husband, a CIA officer. She describes their life in a small city in Laos, ending with the tragic death of her husband. Then her own thirty year CIA career begins in Moscow, where she walks the dark streets alone, placing dead-drops and escaping the relentless eye of the KGB. Experience her arrest and detention in Lyubianka Prison as only she can relate it. What she reveals in the Widow Spy has never been told. Ms. Peterson will bring along copies of her book and be available for book signing.

    Free for members. Non-member all-day admission: $9.50 Adults (13-61), $8.50 Seniors (62+), $7.50 Children (3-12), Free for age 2 & under
