On the anniversary of Sylvia Plath’s birthday, please join us for a special Treasures and Tea celebrating 50 years of Special Collections at UVic Libraries with the announcement of an important acquisition and a public lecture by archivist and Plath scholar Peter K. Steinberg. Steinberg will discuss the history and textual variations of Sylvia Plath’s novel The Bell Jar and two of his recent book projects: co-editing the Letters of Sylvia Plath and co-authoring a book all about Plath’s much-used, widespread archives. In the latter topic Steinberg will reveal never before seen poems by Plath.
