“STRONGER than in man, simpler than a child” is the title of an upcoming talk at the Brontë Parsonage Museum.

The talk on July 28 at 7.30pm will look at the most enigmatic of the Brontë sisters, Emily, on the eve of her birthday.

Charlotte Brontë used the phrase to describe her sister Emily after her death, but this may not be the full picture.
