Charlotte Great and SmallAnd in Sydney, Australia:
Exhibition talk by Tracy Chevalier

To celebrate the launch of "Charlotte Great and Small", novelist and curator Tracy Chevalier will talk about her long-held interest in Charlotte Brontë and the process behind pulling together such a unique exhibition to celebrate Charlotte in her bicentenary year.

Tracy Chevalier is the author of eight novels, including the international bestseller Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Last Runaway, and the forthcoming At the Edge of the Orchard. Born in Washington, DC, she now lives in London with her husband and son.
