Sylvia Plath Talks at Grolier Club

This is a friendly reminder that tomorrow, Thursday, 12 October 2017, there will be a brief Sylvia Plath Symposium at the Grolier Club in New York City.

Judith Glazer Raymo
Tied into a current members exhibit curated by Judith Raymo, the symposium will feature 20 minute talks by Karen V. Kukil, Peter K. Steinberg, and Heather Clark.

Karen V. Kukil
Peter K. Steinberg
Heather Clark
We will each concentrate on a range of subjects covering Plath's archive at Smith (Karen), letters (Peter), and Plath's biography (Heather).

 

Judith's exhibition, which I am excited to see, features selections from her Sylvia Plath collection and includes books, manuscripts, and much more. Additional items are on loan from Smith College. The exhibit closes on 4 November.


I am looking forward to talking about Plath's letters and meeting some new people. If anyone is there tweeting, please tag me if you can and I can retweet later, and use the hasghtag #plathgrolier. Or something! I will try to write up a summary of the event the following morning.

I so much wanted to be there tomorrow, and I had planned to but forgot that we have theater tickets. However, I hope I can just drop by very quickly on my way to the theater to say hello. I've seen the exhibition and it is a great collection.

Eva: Thank you SO much for coming to the Grolier Club to say hi and thank you for the cake, too. I hope Richard III was excellent. ~pks

I so wish I could've stayed! The play was great, but I am upset that I missed the Plath talk. Anyway, I've ordered her letters and I'm excited to read them. Thank you so much for all the work you do, I have now met Karen Kukil a couple of times, so it was nice to meet you too, albeit briefly.
