£5 general sale or free to University of Huddersfield staff and students


Join Prof Heather Clark and Dave Haslam for a discussion about Sylvia Plath’s life, work and legacy.


Heather Clark is Professor of Contemporary Poetry at the University of Huddersfield, and the author of Red Comet: The short life and blazing art of Sylvia Plath, a balanced and comprehensive biography featuring a wealth of new material about the poet. “A first-class biography… Red Comet is a mighty achievement. Clark is compassionate, clear-eyed, sceptical. Each chapter reads with the ease of a novel… I couldn’t put it down.” The Times


Dave Haslam is a writer, broadcaster, and former Hacienda DJ. His limited-edition small format book My Second Home: Sylvia Plath in Paris, 1956 is about a crucial period in the poet’s life just before she married Ted Hughes – specifically her visits to the French capital. My Second Home is the fourth book in Haslam’s small format series (previous subjects include vinyl collecting, Keith Haring, and Courtney Love). He’s also authored five full-length books and his journalism has appeared in the Guardian, the LRB, the Face and elsewhere.
