Valerie Plame Wilson has been the subject of major news headlines for the past several years. She is the author of Fair Game (Simon & Schuster), a highly anticipated memoir detailing the experiences of the former CIA covert operations officer who in 2003 found herself at the heart of a political firestorm when senior White House and State Department officials revealed her secret status to several national journalists – including a syndicated conservative newspaper columnist who published her name. Fair Game will be published in October, 2007.
"We are delighted that Ms Plame Wilson has made herself available to speak at our lunch," states Lance Fensterman, Event Director for BEA. "Her story is shrouded in mystery and intrigue and I know that I am not alone in eagerly anticipating what she has to say. She is a welcome addition to our program and I’m sure she’ll attract a huge audience."
