To honour Plath and (the cancelled) Halloween, we encourage people to dress up in a costume. This could be a Plath-related dress (a Plath-poem, a character from The Bell Jar), or any traditional Halloween costume. We encourage our speakers and participants to grab a drink or have some snacks ready for the "party".
