EMILY Bronte gives way to her less-renowned sister Anne for an event in Haworth on Sunday July 8.

Anne, writer of The Tenant of Wellfell Hall, will take centre stage despite this being Emily’s 200th anniversary year.

The Bronte Society has teamed up with Bradford Literature Festival for Anne & I, beginning at 4pm in Parsons Field behind the Bronte Parsonage Museum, then moving to the nearby Old School Room.

Writer Jackie Kay will unveil her work commemorating Anne Bronte, which was specially commissioned by the festival as part of the Bronte Stones project.

Jackie will read her work in Parsons Field, the site of Anne’s stone, then she will join journalist and broadcaster Samira Ahmed to explore the inspiration for Jackie’s work, her affinity with Anne Bronte, and what participating in the iconic project means to her.

Tickets for the event cost £8 (£5 concessions) by visiting the website bradfordliteraturefestival.co.uk or by calling the festival office on 01274 238525.
