We will discuss Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. Download a copy from Wisconsin's Digital Library (Libby) of the ebook or audiobook from Wisconsin's Digital library or from hoopla. You can also stop by the second-floor Reference desk to check out a copy from the library.
I look forward to discussing this title with you in the Yaz Room. 

The Bell Jar chronicles the crack-up of Esther Greenwood: brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under—maybe for the last time. Sylvia Plath masterfully draws the reader into Esther's breakdown with such intensity that Esther's neurosis becomes completely real and even rational, as probable and accessible as an experience of going to the movies. Such deep penetration into the dark and harrowing corners of the psyche is an extraordinary accomplishment and has made The Bell Jar a haunting American classic. (Description from Overdrive.)
