International Power Couple: Former CIA Spy and Ambassador to Iraq to Speak at Widener

November 15, 2011

The  authors of two books that were the basis for the film “Fair Game” —  former CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson and her husband, Joe Wilson, the former ambassador to Iraq — will speak at Widener University at noon Monday, Nov. 28 in the University Center Webb Room.  The event is free and open to the public but tickets are required.

Valerie Plame Wilson — whom her husband has referred to as “Jane Bond” — is working on a series of spy novels, the first of which will be released next year, The New York Times reported in March.  The couple was featured in an in-depth profile in Vanity Fair magazine in January 2004, and she told the magazine in an interview last year that although she is a good shot with an AK-47, “mental skills” are more important to a CIA agent’s success or failure.
