New Exhibit: Wendy Wasserstein

The Uncommon Life of Wendy Wasserstein is a new exhibit on view at Mount Holyoke College until April 15, 2012. The American playwright Wendy Wasserstein graduated from Mount Holyoke in 1971.

The exhibit overview includes a video interview with Julie Salamon, author of Wendy and the Lost Boys: The Uncommon Life of Wendy Wasserstein (Penguin Press, 2011). Salamon highlights the importance of Wasserstein's notebooks, and expresses a deep appreciation for the work of the Mount Holyoke College Archives.

A number of women from the Mount Holyoke College class of 1971 share their memories of Wasserstein in these YouTube videos.
