Be a Bronte for the day

Image of Branwell

11 May 2013 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Leeds Central Library

 

​Fancy being subtle Charlotte, passionate Emily, down-to-earth Anne? How about tortured, moody Branwell?
Fans of the Brontes will get their chance when Michael Yates, author of the play The Bronte Boy, comes to Leeds Central Library.

Author Michael will be visiting Leeds in May for the launch of the new Drama Library and he plans to talk about how he turned Bronte history into drama.

Michael will also be selling and autographing copies of the paperback version of the play at a discounted £5 a copy.

This promises to be a fantasic afternoon so why not come and join us.
