Iran escapees are guests

Oct 10, 2013

On Saturday, Nov. 2, at 6 p.m., the Evergreen Republican Women's Club will be hosting a special event – An Evening with Mark & Cora Lijek.

The Lijeks were two of the six-person team that escaped from the American Embassy In Iran when it was overthrown in 1979. Their story was depicted in Argo, the Academy Award-winning Best Motion Picture of 2012.

You are invited to this special evening to hear inspiring dialogue, plus video, with this unique American couple. Mark's book – The Houseguest: A Memoir of Canadian Courage and CIA Sorcery – will also be available to purchase.


This event will be held at Shawn O'Donnell's Restaurant, 122 – 128th Street SE, Everett.

There are three price options for the evening:

• Dinner + the presentation is $20

• Cookies & drink (non-acoholic) + the presentation is $15

• Just the presentation is $10

Space is limited, and reservations are required. Call 425-290-2500 or e-mail
