A former covert CIA operations officer, Valerie Plame Wilson worked to protect America’s national security. Without warning, she found herself at the center of a political firestorm after senior White House and State Department officials revealed her secret status to several national journalists and compromised her covert identity. Wilson has since become a public advocate and authority on issues of national security and politics. Join other Penn Staters for dinner and a tour of the International Spy Museum, followed by Wilson’s remarks on her life as a spy and her thoughts regarding the CIA leak controversy in an insightful and unforgettable presentation.
Valerie Plame Wilson is the author of The New York Times best-selling memoir Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House, which was made into a movie starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn. She also narrates and appears in the critically acclaimed documentary on the dangers of nuclear proliferation, Countdown to Zero. Wilson is now working on the first of a series of spy novels. She is a 1985 graduate of Penn State and serves on the Penn State School of International Affairs Advisory Board.
