Charlotte Brontë was a literary visionary, a feminist trailblazer and the driving force in her family, and in Jane Eyre she created a new kind of independent heroine.
Her biographer Claire Harman (winner of the 2015 Forward Prize for Best Single Poem, The Mighty Hudson) and and journalist Lucy Mangan (Stylist and Guardian columnist) explore these very modern Victorian women.
Chaired by Kate Mosse.
This Platform is followed by a booksigning of Charlotte Brontë: A Life by Claire Harman.
