Sylvia Plath Biographer Carl Rollyson at Harvard Bookstore

Carl Rollyson, author of the recently published biography American Isis: The Life and Art of Sylvia Plath, will be at the Harvard Bookstore, 1256 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138 tomorrow, Friday 15 February 2013 at 7 PM to discuss his book. And sign them too. The event is free.

Another free event I would d like to remind you of is "The Bell Jar at 50", the exhibit and lecture (the 13th Annual Professor John Howard Birss, Jr. Memorial Lecture) currently on at Roger Williams University, Bristol, Rhode Island. Read more about the exhibit here (and also see some images of items from the exhibit); and you can recall (fondly) some installation photos here.  The exhibit runs until 10 March; but before that you should consider attending the keynote lecture to be given by Karen V. Kukil of Smith Collection on 27 February at 3:30.

I love the Harvard Bookstore! One of my favourite places to spend time in when I've been lucky enough to be in the area.

Would love Karen's keynote to be broadcast live! Missing out on so many Plath talks!

Hope you enjoyed Carl's evening!

Maeve! Hi there. It was a great discussion on Plath, which including a stuttering & abrasive drunk who thought he knew everything about SP, TH, etc. Loved eavesdropping though didn't battle him on points: the man was huge.

I'll ask the good people at RWU if they have plans to record and/or broadcast the talk. And maybe I can record it on my camera by chance for you.
