On Charlotte Brontë with Claire Harman
Date: Sun, Mar 6, 2016, 11 am
Location: Lexington Avenue at 92nd St
Venue: Warburg Lounge
Claire Harman’s new biography of Charlotte Brontë—timed to her bicentenary—explores the life of a literary visionary and feminist trailblazer that contained all the drama and tragedy of the great Gothic novels (Jane Eyre, Villette, Shirley, The Professor) that it inspired.
Harman has written acclaimed biographies of Robert Louis Stevenson, Sylvia Townsend Warner and Fanny Burney, as well as Jane’s Fame: How Jane Austen Conquered the World.
