Read-Aloud 'The Bell Jar' by Sylvia Plath
At Read-Aloud SG Book Club's November meetup, we're reading The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.
Sylvia Plath's shocking, realistic, and intensely emotional novel about a woman falling into the grip of insanity.
Esther Greenwood is brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under—maybe for the last time. In her acclaimed and enduring masterwork, Sylvia Plath brilliantly draws the reader into Esther's breakdown with such intensity that her insanity becomes palpably real, even rational—as accessible an experience as going to the movies. A deep penetration into the darkest and most harrowing corners of the human psyche, The Bell Jar is an extraordinary accomplishment and a haunting American classic.
See you there!
This event is co-organised by library@orchard.
Join us on our Facebook event page for discussions about the book.
This is a gentle reminder that Sylvia Plath's book contains frank and raw discussion about mental illness, self-harm and death. Self-care is important; we want to acknowledge that these are difficult subject matters and will take every effort to conduct the discussion with care and respect.
