Emily Speaks

  • Bronte Parsonage and Museum Church Street, Haworth Keighley BD22 8DR (map)

Join us on Emily’s birthday to hear personal responses to Emily Brontë’s life, poetry and prose. Bidisha, Hannah Lowe and Melanie Abrahams, whose work encompasses journalism, oration, poetry, and the spoken word, explore Emily’s independence and self-determination in relationship to the racial, cultural and social histories of the Haworth environment and the wider world she inhabited.  

This event is part of a four-part series curated by Melanie Abrahams for the Bronte Parsonage and Museum as part of Emily 200 (events celebrating the 200th birthday of Emily Brontë).
