On the 200th anniversary of her birth Emily Brontë, one of the world’s most enigmatic authors, will be honoured by some of the most well-known names in literature and contemporary culture in her hometown of Haworth. 

Poet and performer Patience Agbabi will present new work created during her time as 2018 Writer in Residence at the Brontë Parsonage Museum this September.  On 28 July she will be joined by other wordsmiths and musicians to respond to themes of the outsider and identity raised in Emily’s writing through readings and performance poetry.
