A Rare Look At Yaddo's Storied Rooms Oct 8. Virtual Fall Benefit

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Yaddo President Elaina Richardson virtually welcomes online visitors to Yaddo, featuring a rare look at many of the estate’s storied rooms - Patricia Highsmith’s study at West House – where notable poets Sylvia Plath and William Carlos Williams also created works -  to Katrina Trask’s bedroom in the historic Mansion, famously depicted in a WW II era edition of Life Magazine featuring then-new writer Truman Capote. 

The presentation is part of the Yaddo Virtual Fall Benefit 2020, which takes place Oct. 8. The event also features Yaddo artists and local supporters revealing what Yaddo means to them and will be highlighted by a performance by the musical duo, The Lazours.
