The intelligence community is deeply invested in shades of truth and untruth, the known and the unknown. It has inspired generations of writers and moviemakers and we can’t seem to get enough details about this ancient art. Lea Carpenter, intelligence literature writer, will sit down with former editor-in-chief of Esquire, Jay Fielden, for a conversation about this unique community. 

Lea Carpenter is the author of “Red, White and Blue” and “Eleven Days.” She is a contributing editor at Esquire and wrote the screenplay for Mile 22, a film about the CIA’s Special Activities Division, directed by Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg and John Malkovich. Carpenter graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Princeton and has an MBA from Harvard Business School, where she was valedictorian.
