These are the central questions of the November book club meeting, which will also feature Kate Lebo, a food writer, poet and pie baker in Seattle who will join us in conversation.
Lebo is out on book tour for her new book, “A Commonplace Book of Pie,” but it was her short booklet, “The Pie Lady’s Manifesto,” that inspired this book club meeting on Sylvia Plath.
Addie remarked... “I never had the chance to study Plath’s poems in school, unfortunately, but Lebo’s manifesto helped me understand how Plath’s poems pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable for a woman to write, and that the mainstream magazines that published them knew that their readers wanted more than a good recipe for pie.”
Sylvia Plath and Kate Lebo's books are in stock now at BookWoman! Everyone welcome!
