The Times announces that,
Northeast Scotland is to get its own poet laureate to promote the region’s native tongue. Sheena Blackhall, a writer and linguist, has been named as the first Doric makar. [...]
Blackhall has translated The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Jane Eyre and The Gruffalo into northeast Scots. (Marc Horne)
And The Yorkshire Post lists some of the events taking place in the area in the coming days:
And over in Brontë country, Haworth will host its nativity weekend. Golcar Brass Band will accompany a nativity procession, made up of Mary and Joseph, angels, shepherds and donkeys as they make their way through the village. (Laura Reid)
AnneBrontë.org has a post on 'Charlotte Brontë’s Letters And North Pole Days'. Calmgrove discusses the relationship between Jane and Rochester in Jane Eyre (although it seems to mistake Constantin Heger and George Smith).
