Ronan Farrow presents CATCH AND KILL: LIES, SPIES, AND A CONSPIRACY TO PROTECT PREDATORS at Back Bay Events Center

October 24, 2019 | 7:30 pm

$38

Harvard Book Store welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter RONAN FARROW for a discussion of his highly anticipated new book, Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators.

About Catch and Kill

In 2017, a routine network television investigation led Ronan Farrow to a story only whispered about: one of Hollywood’s most powerful producers was a predator, protected by fear, wealth, and a conspiracy of silence. As Farrow drew closer to the truth, shadowy operatives, from high-priced lawyers to elite war-hardened spies, mounted a secret campaign of intimidation, threatening his career, following his every move, and weaponizing an account of abuse in his own family.

All the while, Farrow and his producer faced a degree of resistance they could not explain—until now. And a trail of clues revealed corruption and cover-ups from Hollywood to Washington and beyond.

This is the untold story of the exotic tactics of surveillance and intimidation deployed by wealthy and connected men to threaten journalists, evade accountability, and silence victims of abuse. And it’s the story of the women who risked everything to expose the truth and spark a global movement.

Both a spy thriller and a meticulous work of investigative journalism, Catch and Kill breaks devastating new stories about the rampant abuse of power and sheds far-reaching light on investigations that shook our culture.

Ticket price includes book.
