From the Press Release (Feb. 29, 2016, edited Mar. 30)
Life or death missions. Intriguing espionage. Secret travel abroad. Mother. Wife. Author. Former Lower Moreland resident and graduate.
These describe the life led by Valerie Plame, featured speaker at the Huntingdon Valley Library spring author brunch and fundraiser on April 10, 2016, 11 am, at Philmont Country Club (301 Tomlinson Rd).
The cost is $60 and includes a full brunch, omelet station, and valet parking. A special student rate of $35 is now available. All Plame titles, including Fair Game and Burned and Blowback from her spy thriller series, will be available for sale and signing at the brunch from the Friends of Huntingdon Valley Library.
After her identity as a covert CIA operative was revealed by senior Bush Administration officials in 2003, Plame resigned from the Agency and wrote her best-selling memoir, Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House (which became a motion picture starring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts). During the April brunch, Plame will speak about the book and share stories from her spying days.
Plame, who was inducted into the Lower Moreland High School Hall of Fame, has a personal connection to the Library as both her parents, Sam and Diane Plame, served on the board of trustees. Plame also will share tales about her life since resigning from the CIA, and take questions from attendees.
HVL Director Sharon Moreland-Sender said, “Valerie generously agreed to waive her fee to speak at our brunch. I sincerely appreciate her support as we look forward toward achieving some of the key goals from our new strategic plan, like expanded services and hours. This will be our third annual author event and we are so excited to have Valerie share her story with us.”
Corporate sponsors include Burdumy Volvo of Huntingdon Valley and Pewter Sponsor Goldstein’s Funeral Home of Southampton, a family owned and operated funeral home serving the Huntingdon Valley and area community. The Cash Bar is courtesy of Joaquin and Sharon Moreland-Sender.
