Brontë Festival of Women’s Writing 2022

Brontë Festival of Women’s Writing 2022

In conversation with Patricia Park: Adapting ‘Jane Eyre’. Part of the Bronte Festival of Women's Writing.

This year marks the 175th anniversary of Jane Eyre, and what better way to celebrate than with writer Patricia Park. Park’s 2015 novel ‘Re Jane’ reinterprets Charlotte Brontë’s story from the perspective of a half Korean half American protagonist. Patricia writes about minorities within minorities; and we’ll be talking to her about her aspiration to make readers feel less lonely in the world. 
This event takes place 6 pm - 7 pm on Friday 23 September at the Bronte Event Space at the Old School Room. This event costs £8/£6* concessions, and is currently in person only (we are working on an online resource and will be able to confirm this closer to the time, please check back soon).

This event is part of the Brontë Festival of Women’s Writing. The Brontë Sisters were bold, daring and wrote stories that surprised the world. This year’s festival celebrates female writers and artists who create work which pushes boundaries.  From poetry workshops and Q&A’s to live music and more, we’re thrilled to present a festival that welcomes exciting female voices from across the country.

What’s more, this year’s  festival is hybrid, which  means you can join us in person in Haworth or online from wherever in the world you are.  

There's so much to see- why not join us for all our festival events and make a weekend of it?
