Born in Hungary, Kati Marton has combined a career as a reporter and writer with human rights advocacy. In this clip, she presents her latest book, the critically acclaimed memoir Enemies of the People: My Family's Journey to America, for the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle.
Enemies of the People is the result of Marton's quest to discover who her journalist parents really were — and how they survived the Nazis in Budapest and imprisonment by the Soviets during the Cold War. The New York Times called it "a powerful and absorbing narrative … [with] all the magnetism and yes, the excitement of the very best spy fiction."
Kati Marton, an award-winning former NPR and ABC News correspondent, is the author of Hidden Power: Presidential Marriages That Shaped Our History, a New York Times bestseller, as well as Wallenberg, The Polk Conspiracy, A Death in Jerusalem, and a novel, An American Woman.
