WMA signs Condoleezza Rice

Agency pacts with outgoing Secretary of State

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has signed with the William Morris Agency, the first step in what is being called the “reinvention and evolution” of her career.

The agency said Rice will focus on books, lecture appearances, philanthropic activities and “new business initiatives in the media, sports and communications sectors.”

Rice will be represented by WMA chief Jim Wiatt and Wayne Kabak.

Kabak said that Rice will be writing two books: One will focus on her diplomatic career, and the other will be about her parents, the Rev. John Wesley Rice Jr. and Angelena Ray, whom her daughter has referred to as “educational evangelists” for their influence on pursuing academic excellence.

The diplomatic memoir will probably be written first, Kabak said.

If the past is any guide, Rice will be among a flood of former administration figures pursuing book deals and other projects.

President Bush says he is planning to write his memoirs, and Laura Bush recently landed a deal with a publisher for her tome.

The agency currently represents House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Byron Dorgan, Sen. Jim Webb and former Sen. Fred Thompson. In the past the agency has repped former President Gerald Ford and his wife Betty, Gov. Mitt Romney and Sen. John Edwards.
