Top author Michael Morpurgo to visit Haworth
Top children's author Michael Morpurgo will visit Haworth next month to talk about his work.
The popular writer will appear as part of the Bronte Parsonage Museum's contemporary arts programme.
The autumn season also includes a screening of Wuthering Heights and a conference about the Bronteland landscape.
Mr Morpurgo, a former Children's Laureate, has won many awards for his popular children's books.
His novel, War Horse, became a hit play and was recently turned into a film by Steven Spielberg.
Michael will be at the West Lane Baptist Centre on October 12 from 7pm.
He will speak about his most recent book, Where My Wellies Take Me, a collection of favourite poetry.
Andrea Arnold's 2011 screen adaptation of Wuthering Heights will be shown at the Baptist Centre on November 23.
The film is described as a minimalist take on Emily Bronte's novel that strips away the traditional conventions of a period drama.
Families can visit the Bronte Parsonage Museum to see the traditional Christmas decorations, and take part in a felt decoration workshop with artist Rachel Lee, on December 8 from 11am to 4pm.
The contemporary arts season begins next Friday, September 28, with a new exhibition by filmmaker and photographer Simon Warner.
Running until December 3, the display features work created as part of Simon's time as artist-in-residence for the Watershed Landscape project.
Other pictures will document the progressive ruination of Top Withens – reputed to be the setting for Wuthering Heights – during the 20th century.
Simon will also host a symposium on landscape and literature, entitled Unbounded Moor, in association with the Ilkley Literature Festival.
Speakers during the October 6 event include poet Simon Armitage, and other experts on history, weather, mapping and literature.
A conference at the University of Leeds on January 23 will explore the “re-visioning” of the Brontes in recent years through the work of other artists and writers.
The conference ties in with Bronte-themed exhibitions at Leeds College of Art and the university's Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery.
