Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden will join readers in Berlin via video conference to present his new book ‘Permanent Record’ on Tuesday, September 17.
Snowden has been in self-imposed exile in Russia after he revealed that the National Security Agency monitored digital correspondence of millions of US citizens and international leaders. He was charged with espionage and would face arrest if he returns home.
Snowden leaked classified information from the NSA exposing the security agency's vast covert surveillance apparatus in 2013. He was later granted asylum in Russia."
