Part of the 2019 Brontë Festival of Women's Writing

Sara Collins was selected by The Guardian as one of the most hotly-tipped debut novelists of 2019 when her 'lush, gritty, wry, gothic and compulsive' novel, The Confessions of Frannie Langton, was released to great acclaim in April. Collins draws on the passion and emotion of Jane Eyre to create a 'pitch-perfect' gothic novel inhabited by a wholly new and compelling creation in the character of Frannie Langton, a girl whose story begins as she learns to read as s slave on a plantation in Jamaica, travels to grand house in London and ends on trial for murder at the Old Bailey.
In this event, Collins will read from her book and talk about how she was inspired to write a novel where 'the heroine looked like me'.
