The second event last week was with poet, biographer and psychotherapist Lois Ames, held at the headquarters of the New England Forestry Foundation in Littleton, the temporary home of the Retreat.

Ames was a confidante of the poet Anne Sexton, and has published many essays on Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath including: "A Biographical Note" in the "Bell Jar" and "Anne Sexton: A Self Portrait In Letters."

Among the guests for Ames' talk was Alex Beam, Boston Globe columnist, and author of the history of McLean Hospital, "Gracefully Insane."
