“Spy Tales: From Red Cell to Cold Shot”
Join the Kennedy Center’s foray into the world of espionage with Mark Henshaw, the author about whom Publisher’s Weekly said is “solidly in the ranks of the top writers of the genre.” Henshaw is the author of Red Cell as well as the forthcoming novel Cold Shot. A decorated CIA analyst with more than fourteen years of service, in 2007, he was awarded the Director of National Intelligence Galileo Award for innovation in intelligence analysis, and he has received eighteen Exceptional Performance Awards. In 2006, Henshaw graduated from the CIA Sherman Kent School’s Advanced Analyst Program and undertook a three-year rotation with the CIA Red Cell, a unit charged with “taking a pronounced ‘outside-of-the-box’ approach.” His CIA career began with the agency’s Office of Transnational Issues in 1999 as a science, weapons, and technology analyst, and he became a founding “plankholder” with the Agency’s Information Operations Center (IOC) in 2001. He serves on the advisory board for the LDS National Security Professionals group and helped to organize its most recent decennial conference this past year. Henshaw received an MA in international relations from the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies and an MBA from the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University.
