Yorkshire Evening Post reveals the programme for this year's Books by the Beach in Scarborough.
There are a number of events at St. Mary’s Church including bestselling writer Rowan Coleman who introduces her Brontë mysteries under the pen name of Bella Ellis on Saturday June 12 at 1pm. The series sees the Brontë sisters turn detectives before they become famous authors. (Sue Wilkinson)
PopSugar recommends what to read if you've loved Rachel Hawkins's The Wife Upstairs. And of course the first one is
1 Jane Eyre
Because The Wife Upstairs was inspired by Jane Eyre, now is a good time to re-read this Charlotte Brontë classic. Jane Eyre may have a plain appearance, but she is filled with spirit, wit, and courage despite her upbringing by her cruel aunt, Mrs. Reed. When she becomes the governess to the daughter of the mysterious Mr. Rochester at Thornfield, she secretly falls in love. But when a mysterious fire starts and a man shows up claiming to be the brother of Mr. Rochester's first wife, Jane realises things aren't exactly what they seem. (Sydni Ellis)
While BookRiot lists '5 of the Best Sherlock Holmes Comics for You to Investigate', including
Adler by Lavie Tidhard and Paul McCaffrey
Can’t get enough of Irene Adler? Think The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen would be better with women? Try Adler, in which the opera singer-turned-adventuress teams up with other fictional women — Lady Havisham! Jane Eyre! — as well as real historical figures — Marie Curie! Queen Victoria! — to protect the British Empire from an angry African queen and a vampiric assassin. (Eileen Gonzalez)
The Telegraph features Emerald Fennell.
Her willingness to embrace female nuance and unlikeability makes her part of a new generation of talent buoyed by Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag, Michaela Coel’s unjustly Golden Globe ignored I May Destroy You, and Lucy Prebble and Billie Piper’s compelling I Hate Suzie. While books are full of women who frighten and fascinate (Fennell counts the Brontës, Patricia Highsmith and Hilary Mantel among favourites), screen depictions often feel far flatter, she thinks, because physical appearance supercedes attention to detail. “These kind of weird old ladies or pervs or voyeurs” are absent; “We don’t see female losers at all.” (Hannah Betts)
The Guardian has published the obituary for Lady Williams of Crosby (Shirley Williams, redoubtable politician and daughter of Vera Brittain), whose name had an obvious Brontë connection.
Shirley – who was named after Charlotte Brontë’s eponymous “gallant little cavalier”, a champion of social justice – was born in Chelsea, London, the second child of the political scientist George Catlin and the pacifist author Vera Brittain. The pattern of her life and many of its defining influences owed much to the legacy of their unusual and curious parenting. (Julia Langdon)
