Los Angeles Times features young poet Amanda Gorman who's going to recite her work at President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Gorman still keeps a children’s version of “Jane Eyre” that she bought at a dollar store, the artifact of a habit that racked up late fees at several L.A. libraries. Once a book becomes a part of her, she has a hard time giving it back.
“My friends will be, like, ‘You’d love this book. Let me lend it to you,’” she said. “And I’m, like, ‘Listen to me: Don’t.’” (Julia Barajas)
Screen Rant explains why 'Bridgerton Season 2 Will Tell The Story Period Romances Usually Avoid':
Though Bridgerton has already shown Simon and Daphne’s wedding and given us a glimpse into their marriage, season 2 can tell the story that most Regency romances avoid. Jane Austen, the most famous of Bridgerton's early 1800s Regency-era authors, wrote six novels that all ended with a wedding (or shortly thereafter) and some variation of “they lived happily ever after.” But Jane Austen isn’t the only author who utilized this trope. Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre is bleak and intense compared to Jane Austen’s novels, but it nonetheless ends in a similar way: “Reader, I married him.” (Caroline Fox)
It doesn't actually end like that of course.

The Telegraph and Argus recommends Keighley Moor Reservoir for a quiet walk.
Where the lane bends to the left it is possible to cut the corner and take a direct footpath to your start but I prefer following the lane, and soon you’ll arrive at the woodland of Tewitt Hall.
Before arriving at the hall look behind and to the north where there are lovely long distance views towards the Dales. Turn right at the foot of Tewitt Hall’s lane and enjoy the views the other way, into the bleaker but exciting Brontë Moors. (Emma Clayton)
The Times recommends streaming Blackeyed Theatre’s adaptation of Jane Eyre. AnneBrontë.org looks at the national news on the day Anne Brontë was born. Brussels Brontë Blog tells about a recent Zoom talk by Helen MacEwan on Brussels in the early 1840s.
