Charlotte Bronte’s Bicentenary Symposium

On April 22nd we hosted a symposium in honour of Charlotte Bronte’s 200th birthday the day before. The event was fun and informal, featuring a round-table discussion of Bronte’s life, works and biographies, Miss Temple’s (delicious!) seed cake; dramatic readings of some of Bronte’s letters and a passage from Jane Eyre. Thank you to all who attended the event and added to the discussions. Some pictures below:
