British Library asks nation's children to write miniature books in lockdown

Brontë Quizzes - Keeping the Flame Alive

Keeping the Flame Alive

In order to help Brontë people everywhere while away the hours during the present Crisis, when we are frustratingly 'confined to barracks', I have written a set of twelve Bronte Quizzes, each of thirty marks, which are being posted fortnightly on Bronte Blog. He has called the series 'Keeping the Flame Alive', which is of course the title of Val Wiseman's classic Bronte-themed CD, and seems rather appropriate right now!

Many thanks - keep safe,

John Hennessy

Ann Dinsdale - Living with the Brontës #LLF20

Inspiring the City : 

Living with the Brontës with Ann Dinsdale

6pm Wednesday 4 March 

Guiseley Library
This illustrated talk is given by Ann Dinsdale, Principal Curator at the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth. The Brontë sisters are known and admired across the world and much has been written about their lives and work. This talk will include the whole Bronte family, with special attention being given to Anne, the youngest sister, who has often been overlooked.  Ann will draw on her experience as curator, bringing in some of the details that people may not be as familiar with, and using images of items from the Museum’s collection as illustrations.
This event takes place at Guiseley Library, based at Aireborough Leisure Centre. Inspiring the City is supported by Leeds Inspired, part of Leeds City Council.
