SOMOS to host book signing with Plame

-A A +A

The Society of the Muse of the Southwest (SOMOS) in Taos will host the next leg of reading and book signing event with internationally known former CIA agent, Valerie Plame Wilson, 7 p.m. Feb. 7.
Plame will read from her latest espionage thriller, “Blowback,” at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House.

Following the reading, Managing Editor of the Taos News, Joan Livingston, will interview Plame about the book and her days as a CIA ops officer.

“I have always been alarmed by how women in the CIA are treated in popular culture,” Plame said. “They are generally depicted as obtaining intelligence through sexual favors or accomplished gun-play. The female characters tend to be one-dimensional and, to my mind, almost always verging on cartoonish. I wanted to change that perception and create a female character that was intelligent, strong-willed, and much more realistic than what we have seen thus far.”
