A YORKSHIRE-born writer will explore the complex family dynamics that resulted in some of the English language’s greatest novels being created by the Brontës.

Blake Morrison will deliver a talk at Hall Green Baptist Chapel in Haworth at 9.45am on June 10.

Mr Morrison has written poetry, fiction, memoirs and literary criticism.

He is best known for his two memoirs – Things My Mother Never Told Me and When Did You Last See Your Father? The second of these was made into a film starring Colin Firth, Jim Broadbent and Juliet Stevenson.

Mr Morrison has also completed several novels, including South Of The River and The Last Weekend. The latter was made into a three-part television drama.

He has adapted six plays for the Halifax-based theatre company Northern Broadsides, including a reworking of Chekov’s The Three Sisters as a play about the Brontës.

Born in Skipton, he now lives in London and is professor of creative and life writing at Goldsmiths University.

Tickets for his talk in Haworth are priced £3, and are free for Brontë Society members. Visit bronte.org.uk/whats-on or call 01535 640192 to book.
