On Monday, Oct. 28, Poet Elizabeth Winder will read from her acclaimed book, Pain, Parties, Work: Sylvia Plath in New York, Summer 1953. The presentation, which is free and open to the public, highlights the life-changing weeks Plath participated in during an internship at Mademoiselle Magazine and how these twenty-six days indelibly altered how Plath saw herself, her mother, her friendships, and her romantic relationships.
Plath drew upon this experience in her thinly-veiled autobiographical novel, The Bell Jar, and in the legendary poems to follow. Winder is the author of a poetry collection and her works have appeared in the Chicago Review, the Antioch Review, and other publications.
The reading will be held on Oct. 28 from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in room S-29/30, and there will be a reception and book signing following the reading.
