Wednesday 28 July 2021

First of three events in partnership with Elizabeth Gaskell's House

First of three events in partnership with Elizabeth Gaskell's House

A Talk by Sue Newby, Learning Officer at the Brontë Parsonage Museum
7-8pm Wed 28th July 
Welcome to the first in a series of events examining Elizabeth Gaskell's biography of novelist Charlotte Brontë. The Life of Charlotte Brontë told the story of a ‘wild, sad life and the beautiful character that grew out of it’ but was not without controversy when it was first published in 1857. The first biography to be written both by and about a woman writer, it remains a classic of the genre. Discover how Elizabeth's The Life secured the legacy, reputation and myth of Charlotte Brontë after her death.

Part of a series of events by the Brontë Parsonage Museum in partnership with Elizabeth Gaskell’s House.
Tickets £4 / £3 concessions
