    In 1942, the Gestapo sent out an urgent transmission: "She is the most dangerous of all Allied spies. We must find and destroy her."  The target in their sights was Virginia Hall, a Baltimore socialite who talked her way into Special Operations Executive, the spy organization dubbed Winston Churchill's "Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare." She became the first Allied woman deployed behind enemy lines and -- despite her prosthetic leg -- helped to light the flame of the French Resistance, revolutionizing secret warfare as we know it.

    Virginia established vast spy networks throughout France, called weapons and explosives down from the skies, and became a linchpin for the Resistance. Even as her face covered wanted posters and a bounty was placed on her head, Virginia refused order after order to evacuate. She finally escaped through a death-defying hike over the Pyrenees into Spain, her cover blown. But she plunged back in, adamant that she had more lives to save, and led a victorious guerilla campaign, liberating swathes of France from the Nazis after D-Day.

    Based on new and extensive research, Sonia Purnell has for the first time uncovered the full secret life of Virginia Hall--an astounding and inspiring story of heroism, spycraft, resistance, and personal triumph over shocking adversity. A Woman of No Importance is the breathtaking story of how one woman's fierce persistence helped win the war.

    Join Shannon Huneycutt as she teaches you the the KonMari philosophy and guiding principles needed to tidy up once and for all!  Leave feeling motivated to Spark Joy® in your home, office, and life!  Be sure to have a standard t-shirt and a pair of pants ready for the folding activity as you will be learning the famous KonMari vertical folding technique. Click here for the checklist that will be referenced at the event or stop by the Library to pick one up.

    “Some people think following the KonMari Method means you have to get rid of everything, which isn’t the case. You still need practical things, like a toolkit, for example, because it serves a purpose.  Ultimately, KonMari is about living your life with people and things that you love:  that’s why it’s ‘life-changing.’ What kind of life do you want to live?  The KonMari Method ensures that you’re living it to the fullest and being happy.” - Shannon Huneycutt.

    This program will be held via Zoom; make sure to have the Zoom app downloaded to your device prior to the event.  One attendee will win a free 3-hour virtual tidying session with Shannon to help them get started on their journey!
