Reading The Bell Jar and Recuperating at The Infirmary

A book group within different surroundings and a chance to revisit the classic The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath which documents a character's journey into insanity. 

What do you think about the depiction of the character's mental state? How does that differ from case notes we have from Powick Hospital dating back to Victorian period?

An evening in the gallery at The Infirmary discussing your ideas and thoughts on the book free to come and free to share. 

Spot instruments in the gallery which may have played a part in the book. Take a seat in the gallery or online after hours and join the conversation. Books can be reserved at The Hive, see museum website and Facebook for more on the discussions.

Later Event: September 10
Heritage open Day at The Infirmary
