Tomorrow, April 20, a Zoom event organized by the Brussels Brontë Group:
Tuesday 20 April at 20.00
Talk by Samantha Ellis

Anne Brontë has always been overshadowed by her two elder sisters. To celebrate her bicentenary we have invited Samantha Ellis, the writer who had done so much to bring Anne into the limelight and highlight her strengths both as a person and writer.

Samantha Ellis’ Take Courage: Anne Brontë and the Art of Life (2017) takes a personal, poignant and surprising journey into the life and work of ‘the other Brontë sister’, viewing her as a brave, strongly feminist writer well ahead of her time – and her more celebrated siblings – with much to teach us today about how to find our way in the world.

Samantha, a British writer, playwright and journalist, is also the author of How to be a Heroine (2014).
