Wordplay 2021: Connie Palmen

Intercontinental Series featuring Connie Palmen

Virtual Wordplay is a presentation of St. Catherine University and Star Tribune.


In Your Story, My Story: A Novel, Connie Palmen constructs the untold story of Ted Hughes, the often-reviled romantic partner of poet Sylvia Plath. Allowing Hughes to speak in his own voice, Palmen relentlessly uncovers a hidden perspective on the highs and lows of loving and losing Plath—inevitably shifting how we view these two famous literary icons.
