The Meredith Hindley program in the Council’s special “Spy Month” lineup is not just a matter of Casablanca and World War II history, it is a matter of taste, i.e., the traditional taste of a fabulous Moroccan dinner at Souk in Trinity Groves.

Join us with writer and historian Hindley, the author of Destination Casablanca: Exile, Espionage, and the Battle for North Africa in World War II.


Sir Richard Dearlove - A Contributors' Circle Members and Above Only Program

Ex-MI6 Chief

Monday, November 13, 2017 - 6:00 PM
Crescent Club, Dallas

Council members have the opportunity on Monday, November 13, to hear a man who was a real “top spy,” Sir Richard Dearlove, the Chief of MI6, Great Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, from 1999 until he retired in 2004.

A respected member of the clandestine community, he has been in the headlines in recent months for his comments on the state of Europe, Donald Trump and the Russians. Sir Richard is frequently called upon by media to comment on international affairs and developments that have affected or may affect the United Kingdom. Sir Richard’s MI6 designation was “C,” the real-life equivalent of the James Bond movies’ spy chief, “M.”
