SLCL Presents Heather Clark

Tuesday, November 2nd, 7pm CST
St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, and Left Bank Books present Heather Clark, “Red Comet: The Short Life and Blazing Art of Sylvia Plath.”
 
 
With a wealth of never-before-accessed materials, literary historian Heather Clark brings to life the brilliant Sylvia Plath. A finalist for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, “Red Comet” focuses on Plath’s remarkable literary and intellectual achievements, while thoroughly exploring Plath’s life, including her troubles with an unenlightened mental health industry and her thunderclap meeting with Ted Hughes. Along with illuminating readings of the poems themselves, Clark’s meticulous, compassionate research brings us closer than ever to the spirited woman and visionary artist who blazed a trail for women poets the world over.
 
 
Books available from Left Bank Books. Curbside pick-up, in-store pick-up, and shipping available.
