|Plot Summary of Through the Flower|
|"Judy Chicago's first autobiography tells the story of the first 35 years of her life. Spanning from her childhood, in which her father, a radical leftist, died when she was a teenager, through her college career and adult life as an artist, Chicago discusses the difficulties she faced as a female artist. Chicago is candid about love, sex, art, and feminism. The book was written only two years before Chicago created her most famous installation, The Dinner Party."
Judy Berman, Resident Scholar
