After a harsh childhood, orphan Jane Eyre is hired by Edward Rochester, the brooding lord of a mysterious manor house.

Who is the greatest Mr Rochester of them all? And when did Heathcliff become sexy instead of just scary? Samira Ahmed leads a panel discussion exploring the many facets of the Brontë phenomenon, from screen adaptations and fan fiction to literary inspiration and tourism.

Panel:
Mick Jackson, whose latest novel Yuki Chan In Brontë Country follows a young Japanese woman retracing her mother’s footsteps around Haworth
Dr Amber Regis, Lecturer in 19th-Century Literature at the University Of Sheffield
Lauren Livesey of the Brontë Society & Brontë Parsonage Museum.
