BOLTON Library and Museum will be exploring the lives and literature of the Bronte sisters in a special ' in conversation' evening.

Author visits to Bolton Library have been cancelled because of the pandemic but now thanks to the power of technology the library has teamed up with Saraband Press to invite the public to join two of the authors of Saraband's 'A View From the 21st Century' Bronte biographies: Dr Sophie Franklin and Adelle Hay. Questions they will be exploring will include: who was the real Charlotte Bronte and which is the greatest Brontë novel of all?

The event takes place on March 17 at 6.30pm. To book free tickets visit and get a Zoom link. The talk is part of the New Worlds Festival.
