An online evening event.

In this special evening event, we welcome Karen Powell, author of 'Fifteen Wild Decembers', to discuss her novel that creatively reimagines the life of Emily Brontë.
'Isolated from society, the Brontë children spend all their time inventing elaborate fictional realms or roaming the wild moors above their family home in Yorkshire. When the time comes for them to venture out into the world to earn a living, each of them struggles to adapt, but for Emily the change is catastrophic. Torn from the landscape she loves and no longer able to immerse herself in the fantastical world of Gondal that she and her younger sister Anne have created, she is simply unable to function.'
Hosted by Helen Meller, we’ll delve into Karen’s novel, and explore the imagination of Emily Brontë and Karen Powell.
Date: Thursday 21 March, 7:30pm (GMT)
Tickets: £6

This online event will take place via Zoom. This is a live event and will not be recorded.
