What was it about life in a cold and isolated parsonage in Yorkshire that inspired three sisters to become supreme storytellers whose works have joined the classics of English literature? In the 200th anniversary year of Charlotte’s birth, Brontë biographer Juliet Barker (The Brontës: A Life in Letters) and Lauren Livesey, Arts Officer at The Parsonage Museum, reflect on how family relationships and deaths, home and landscape influenced Charlotte, Emily and Anne. Chaired by Libby Purves.
