Valerie Plame is a former spy with an extraordinary story to tell and that’s what she will do in Ubud on Thursday April 17, 2014, at the Indus Restaurant between 7:00 pm and 8:30 pm, doors will open at 6:00 pm.

Valerie Plame's name earned the unwanted notoriety disdained by one in the cloak and dagger trade when the Bush administration “blew her cover” in 2003, making her name ‘fair game’ in the White House's campaign of misinformation about the Weapons of Mass Destruction as the raison d'être for going to war in Iraq.

In 2007 she published a memoir that was turned into a film starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn.

More recently, she has co-authored with Sarah Lovett the best selling Blowback Series relating the exploits of a, “young, blonde, lithe” Vanessa Pierson, who Plame describes as a, “younger, smarter version of me.”

The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival (UWRF)
is hosting Valerie Plame’s visit to Ubud to participate in an intimate evening of literary conversation on Thursday, April 17, 2014.

Join the fun at Indus to hear more about Valerie’s fascinating life’s journey, her transformation into a writer and her fiery fictional alter ego, Vanessa.

The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is held annually in Ubud, Bali’s artistic and cultural heartland, where it has become Southeast Asia’s largest and most renowned cultural and literary event.

This year’s festival is dedicated to Saraswati, the Balinese Hindu goddess of learning, with the theme ‘Wisdom & Knowledge’ and will be held October 1-5, 2014 in Ubud.

Leading writers, thinkers, artists and performers from across Indonesia and across the globe will come together over five days of events to celebrate knowledge and the arts, education, wisdom and science.
