Brontë Festival of Women's Writing

The Brontë Festival of Women’s Writing is back with an impressive line-up of female writers, poets, artists and experts driving the sustainability conversation.

Written in the Stars
with Emma Chapman and Libby Jackson

Saturday 23 September
7.30pm - 9pm (GMT)

"Oh, stars, and dreams, and gentle night; Oh, night and stars, return!”

Space is just as exciting as the women who explore it. Join us for an in conversation with Dr Emma Chapman, astrophysicist and author of ‘First Light’, and Libby Jackson, NASA scientist and author of 'A Galaxy of Her Own: Amazing Stories of Women in Space’, as they discuss their work writing about space for different audiences.

How do you take complex theories and mind-blowing stories and write those for a non-STEM audience? What challenges might women in STEM and literature face?

After the discussion we'll take to the stars ourselves, enjoying some late night Yorkshire Moor Stargazing with Bradford Astronomical Society, who will give insight into the Brontës’ connection to the night sky.

This event will take place at West Lane Baptist Church, Haworth, Keighley, West Yorkshire, BD22 8EN
