The Brontë Society Annual Literary Lunch

with Samantha Ellis

November 04th 2017 11:00am - 03:00pm

with Samantha Ellis

Samantha Ellis, author of the acclaimed Take Courage: Anne Brontë and the Art of Life will be our special guest at this highlight of the Brontë Society calendar.

Samantha Ellis is a playwright and journalist. Her first book, How to Be a Heroine, was published in 2014. Her plays include Cling to me Like Ivy and How to Date a Feminist. She has written for the Guardian, TLS, Spectator, The Pool and more. She lives in London.
Her recent book, Take Courage, is Samantha's personal and surprising journey into the life and work of Anne Bront
ë - a woman sidelined by history. A brave, strongly feminist writer well ahead of her time - and her more celebrated siblings - and who has much to teach us today about how to find our way in the world.
