A gripping true story of the history-making collusion between Hollywood and high-stakes espionage!

Join International Spy Museum Board Member Tony Mendez in celebrating the book launch of ARGO, the inside story of his ingenious yet incredibly risky plan to rescue six Americans who escaped from the US embassy in Tehran on November 4, 1979 during the Iranian Hostage Crisis. Armed with foreign film visas, Mendez traveled to Tehran posing as the production manager for a location scouting team looking for sites for a fake film called Argo. While pretending to find the perfect scenery and backdrops, Mendez and a colleague succeeded in contacting the escapees and smuggling them out of Iran without a single shot being fired. Join Mendez as he launches his new book ARGO which finally details the mind-bogglingly complex and dangerous operation he led more than three decades ago. He'll also brief you on the soon-to-be released major motion picture ARGO directed by and starring Ben Affleck.
