Anne Brontë: In Her Own Words
Sunday, 5th July 2020 | 9:00 am

The Brontë sisters – Emily, Charlotte and Anne – are often talked about in one breath without considering their own unique personalities.
Anne Brontë’s work, which included novels Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, address feminist issues that are still subject to debate and discussion today. But what do these novels tell us about Anne herself, and do her poems and letters reveal more?

In this panel discussion, chaired by Bidisha, Brontë experts Adelle Hay, Samantha Ellis and Marianne Thormählen look at what we can learn about the ‘real’ Anne Brontë as a writer and as a woman.
