City Club Lunch Program:  Argo - Fact or Fiction?

January 22, 2014 at 11:30 am

Academy-Award winning movie, Argo, captured the fascination of moviegoers around the world. But how true was it?

Mark Lijek, was one of the “houseguests” of the Canadian Embassy during the Iran hostage crisis. He was portrayed in Argo and was a consultant on the movie.

He wrote his memoir, The Houseguests: A Memoir of Canadian Courage and CIA Sorcery, in large part because, after reading an early script of Argo, he realized the movie was unlikely to give adequate credit to the Canadian embassy team he believes saved him and his wife Cora from becoming hostages. \

Mr. Lijek will be speaking to us about his experiences and his take on the US /Iran relations of today.
